Hi ,  please see my comment below
 
6. If you happen to see Sheila this afternoon, explain the delay   – For no 6, the word ABOUT  is unnecessary in the statement. you can remove that 
19.  He promised to help Margaret to set up a new helpline service for patients. – for no 19 – The verb PROMISED is usually followed by the TO- infinitive not by a gerund. Change helping to infinitive form TO HELP 
23. I was shocked that he never bothered to visit his mother in the hospital. – Pronouns  ( It Me) are used incorrectly. Replace it with  I was ;  also IN HOSPITAL  the noun phrase in hospital is missing a determiner before it. replace it with  in the hospital
