    We obtain a summation formula for the hypergeometric series of unit argument p+2Fp+1 with p pairs of numeratorial and denominatorial parameters differing by positive integers. This summation formula is an alternative representation to that presented by Miller and Paris [Rocky Mountain J. Math. 43 (1) (2013), 291{327] and involves a p-fold sum with coeffcients that contain only ratios of Pochhammer symbols. The case when one of the parameters is a negative integer is also considered.
