"4 days still no diagnosis!"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

My partner is currently in Blackburn hospital and I have to say I am appalled! He has been there since Saturday morning and still no diagnosis of what is wrong and what needs to be done! Was told emergency MRI scan yesterday still led thier waiting! Man next to him came in yesterday got scanned already! No wonder beds are short if it takes this long to do anything!
