"Wish I could go to another hospital"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

Anything else?

I am still in hospital, the doctors suspected something that would need operating on urgently, so I was on Nill by mouth from 12 yesterday then was to have scan to confirm diagnosis. But the scan never happened and I am in agonising pain but no one seems to know when I am having my scan. I have to suffer in pain until the doctor comes and I know what is happening. I have asked for stronger pain relief to no avail. I will never come to this hospital again and if I suffer due to not being treated I will seek legal advice. And before you say it I can't contact Pals as they don't work weekends.
