"Excellent consideration as per my letter below."

About: Leighton Hospital

Copy of my letter to Haematology Dept. 3 September 2014 Dear [doctor] [...] I was referred to you on 1 October 2013 and it was subsequently decided to address my iron overload with a series of venesections which commenced in April 2014 when my ferritin was above 800 ug/l. I am now well into the course and pleased to be making very good progress, indeed the treatment is reducing my ferritin levels at an astonishing and apparently increasing rate. My last two (or three) sessions have reduced my ferritin from 401 ug/l in mid June to 118 ug/l in mid August. As this far exceeds my expectations and possibly yours, I thought it would be prudent to draw your attention to this progress. I have made some minor dietary changes including vitamin B12 supplements which may have contributed marginally but would welcome a professional opinion that might explain my progress. May I also take this opportunity to compliment your staff in the PIU clinic, they are absolutely wonderful, flexible with appointments, competent, cheerful and helpful. They are a credit to your service and Leighton Hospital. Kind regards, D..... H.......
