"Urgent mri results"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital

I was sent for an Urgent mri on 29.01.16.

I was told to go to the gp within a few days to get the results... how ever I did this to find no results and Dr said they would telephone and chase them.

Today I ring the surgery to be told my results are not available.

I then ring the hospital to fingers that my urgent Mri is still waiting on the Radiologist desk and is still not reported on.

I have spent the last 6 wks in agony and on high doses of morphine .

That even as urgent your mri scan can sit on a desk waiting for some one to look at it and report on it... but I can go to the hospital and purchase a copy of my mri on a disk. It seems a joke.

And the pain increases the longer I wait.
