"111 Service"

About: King George Hospital

Many thanks to the 111 service and king George's hospital in chad well Heath. In November, on the morning I was due to France, I developed a bad earache and severely swollen face. A friend told me to dial 111. I received an immediate appointment to go to King Geaorges. I caught a taxi and was in and out of the hospital within 50 minutes, having been seen and treated and received anti- biotics and was able to make my flight and had a relaxed holiday. Many thanks to the 111 operator and the staff at King George's. What a brilliant service
