This evening, after checking in the Urgent Treatments area reception, my father and I waited for a nurse to see us, as I was suffering quite worrying symptoms. Upon discussion, the nurse seeing us basically told me that I should've made an appointment with my GP. After I'd said that usually, at my local surgery, it takes a couple of weeks to get an appointment and that I felt this was an urgent matter, he literally replied for me to leave and call 111. Doing so, the person at the 111 line told me to see a doctor immediately as possible, within the hour. My father then took it upon himself to make it clear to the reception that I needed to see a doctor, however after waiting a further 45 minutes, we left. I am going to go to Horsham hospital tomorrow and see if their services are any better.
