"X-ray results for referral"

I was referred to Southampton Treatment Centre (CARE UK) in 2014, but unfortunately had to put an operation on hold as I was moving house.
I have since asked for a referrel to The Royal South Hants Hospital, Southampton expecting them to have copies of X rays and two MRI scans, and was astounded to be told CARE UK would not give these to them.
As CARE UK was paid for these by the NHS, surely these belong to the NHS? I have been told I have to go through another series of x rays and MRI scans (thus doubling up the cost to the NHS)
No wonder the NHS is in such financial troubles. ! I would mention that I telephoned CARE Uk and ask them if I could have a DVD copy of the MRI scans, only to be told that these would cost £50 each due to the time elapsed since they were taken.
I would welcome your comments on the above. Many thanks.
