They didn't write, they didn't call, but I can take a hint.............

Finally! I heard back from Heartlands Hospital.

Well kind of.

The HPA works within the Heartlands Hospital Pathology Laboratory where the employees from the two organisations work side by side.

This is (effectively) the job I applied for at the HPA at Heartlands. I'm guessing they hired someone internally.........
