Dear JA

Thank you for taking the time to tell us your story. I'm sorry that you are having issues with seeing a specialist at Pilgrim In order for us to resolve this quickly for you, can you please call our Parient Advice & Liaison Service. (PALS). They will be able to take your details and liaise directly with the specialist's secretary and then let you know what will happen next regarding an appointment date.

You have mentioned that you are missing some biopsy results. As you have seen a doctor at Boston West, unfortunately this falls outside the remit of Pilgrim Hospital and our trust and your GP will need to contact Boston West to chase up the missing results.

The contact details for PALS are 01205 446243 or by email pals@ulh.nhs.uk

Please be assured that PALS will look into this as soon as you contact them.
