What he said.
The only way it could be a problem again one week later is if they didn't do the job proberly the first time. If they have not cleaned the engine out properly and left metal fragments in there from last time it's their fault. Likewise if they haven't inspected or replaced the pump. Sound's like they've done a half arsed job and are trying to fob you off.
If it's not making any noise yet, maybe it's just metal from last time and you only need to change the oil again, have the whole engine flushed out properly and try again?
Have they removed the bearing caps and checked the shells to see if they're actually damaged? Small scrape marks will be pretty evident. If you've caugt it early enough it my be enough just to replace the shells (again). But you'll obviously have to make sure the engine is properly flushed out this time, head to toe. The cam cover should come off and the whole oil sytem and galleries purged.
If the garage is not helpfull, I'd be down to trading standards.
