"Cancelled MRI Scan"

About: Hospital Of St Cross (Rugby)

I had an appointment for a MRI Scan on Sunday 20th December 2015, I had a lot of problems trying to get a scan in the first place because I have had a back problem for many months, finely I get a scan, and to find out on the morning that I arrived at 8.30am it got cancelled, ok, not there fault as the machine broke down, but the fact of the matter is now I'm going to be put back to the bottom of the list, I think this is so wrong. Now things are going to prolong any treatment I may need, and I have to suffer in pain a lot longer. I don't see why I can't be transferred to another hospital for a scan to take place, before Xmas???
