"Waiting over a week for a scan that takes 5..."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

I got admitted to the hospital on the 9th march 2016. I was put on ward 11 and that was it. For all 8 days and still more, I've been waiting for an MRI scan that tales 5 minuets. Its ridiculous. The staff are fantastic don't get me wrong, they cant do enough for you. But the nhs need to sort out shorted waiting times. I could have found out the problem to my seizures by now instead of just been put on medication and left in my bed for over a week.
