"Hospital admission via 111 service"
Posted by Kendall (as ),
I called 111 after suffering for 8 days with severe sore throat. Although my GP had prescribed anti biotics, the condition worsened. I was sent to my local Hospital and diagnosed with Quinsy. The Doctor arranged for me to see an ENT specialist at another Hospital where I was treated very well indeed and given IV antibiotics. Then through the not inconsiderable efforts of one of the Nurses who, I believe, should have finished her shift and gone home was able to be discharged that evening thereby freeing a bed.
The 111 service worked very well indeed!
A big thank you to her and all at Medway Maritime Hospital
