"Sister been waiting for procedure for 15 days"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

My sister was transferred here 15 days ago for pacemaker removing We were told she would have a couple of days of tests then procedure would be done then she would be transferred back to Wiigan Zshe was supposed to have a TO examination last Tuesday it was cancelled at 3 pmShe was supposed to have it Friday She asked the nurses Thursday night had she to fast and they said they would get back to her They didn't . The Doctor came to take her for the test and it couldn't be done as she hadn't fasted There seems to be no urgency with tests and no one seems to know when they are being done We were also told she would have to be listed for the pacemaker!Iv been today and she's now got MRSA not at all happy We need to get her back to Wigan ASAP as we are elderly making traveling on trains and buses difficult
