Replacement lined up

Thank you for writing to the Advertiser (‘We Need A Councsellor’, Concerned Patient, August 15) and expressing your concerns.

Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides the consultants for this particular service, including Dr Swanwick. As Dr Swanwick is taking time out of work, we have worked with Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to secure a replacement consultant in order to continue delivering this high quality service. We do hope this reassures you. Should you have any further queries about this or any other services, please contact our Patient Experience Team on 01773 525119 or PET@dchs.nhs.uk.
