"Very good MRI scan experience, but where are the..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I had an MRI scan of my brain and upper spine at King's. Although it was an unpleasant experience to go through - very claustrophobic and loud - the members of staff I encountered were very kind and professional and put me completely at my ease. The room with the MRI scanner was spotlessly clean. However, having been told I'd receive the results in writing within 2 weeks, I am still waiting for these 3 and a half weeks later. I've rung a couple of times but the phone hasn't been answered - this is very frustrating and worrying.
