Enquiries, comments and complaints

We want to ensure that we are aware of any issues that you may have and that they are investigated and resolved appropriately.

Please email us at stgh-tr.SWLPcomms@nhs.net and we will investigate every reported issue. If you are emailing about a patient or test result, in order to resolve any queries we will need the following information:

1. The patient’s NHS number
2. Date the sample was ordered
3. Name of the test ordered
4. Which service area (Microbiology, Clinical Blood Sciences, Cellular Pathology)

This will allow each query to be logged and allocated to a named individual for investigation.
