He was told that he would be move on friday 7th August.

was told that transport has been arranged for 8pm (10th) to St Heleir.

time now 02:05am 11th August.

Status: still waitting......

Ask them to check agian and got a reply of "in about an hour"

I suppose we are lucky we have only waited over 6 hours and hopfully only one more to go, I hear that there is someone in the next bed has been waiting since 3pm 10th august so hope we won't beat his record time of 11hours and 20mins
