"Still waiting"

About: Glenfield Hospital

My husband is currently on Ward 34 waiting to have his aertoic valve replaced. He was admitted on 31st January 2015 from Kettering General , where he had been waiting for a week for a bed to become available at Glenfield hospital. After having numerous tests it was decided that he also would require a C.T scan to provide further information prior to him having surgery . He has now been waiting for 3 days for the scan! He keeps being told that he's 'on the list' but nothing seems to be happening . I find it extremely fustrating that there appears to be no end in sight for my hisband and myself to this situation .
