A Tube driver is "devastated" after being stuck in hospital with pneumonia for more than two weeks as he waits for an operation.

Roger Ousby, 45, from Bromley North, became ill on January 1 and went to see a doctor.

He was prescribed antibiotics but did not get better.

On his third visit to the doctors on January 24, he was sent to Princess Royal University Hospital where he was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Roger remains there and has been told he needs video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at Guy’s Hospital to clear out infection from his chest.

However, his wife Sarah said he has waited two weeks for a bed to become available despite multiple promises.

"I am at a loss," she told News Shopper.

"He is absolutely devastated.

"He was ready to go and the impact this is having on family and work is amazing."

Roger is too sick to go home and is receiving intravenous antibiotics, and his wife said he has been desperate to transfer to Guy’s.

Guy's has confirmed that Roger is being transferred today (February 8), 24 hours after News Shopper first contacted the hospital.

The Tube driver has been off work since January and has been growing increasingly frustrated at the wait for treatment.

Sarah added: "We are assuming that as soon as he does the operation he will be on the road to recovery and he will do a lot better.

"He is 45 and I wonder if this will have a lasting impact."

She said her husband is struggling with his breathing and has a high temperature.

Roger’s son is currently taking his A-levels and his wife has just started a new role as a blood donor carer.

Princess Royal University Hospital confirmed Roger is still being treated and is waiting for transfer.

A spokesman for Guy's said Roger is due to have his operation tomorrow.
