About: Lincoln County Hospital

I've had tonsillitis for over a year now, and I've been on the tonsillectomy waiting list, since march, and when i rang they said i had to wait 7 months maximum, but i have 2 weeks left of my 7 months, ive had no appointments, no phone calls, no letters. I am outraged with how they do not keep their patients informed.

Wouldnt recommend it to anyone. Go private

Response from Chris Sharman, Patient Experience Support Officer, Patient Experience, United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Thank you for sharing your story with us. I'm sorry that you are encountering issues regarding the receipt of an appointment. Clearly this is unacceptable and we want to get this resolved for you.

As we do not have your personal details, can I please ask that you call our PALS team at Lincoln on 01522 707071 or pals@ulh.nhs.uk.

They will be able to take your details and liaise with the correct clinical teams to see why there has been an unacceptable delay and confirm an appointment date for you.
