About: South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / NHS 111

(as the patient),

I called in a busy period and waited over half an hour to speak to an adviser, but I was in the comfort of my own bed with all facilities that I needed near to hand. I spoke with the adviser, I cannot remember his name, but he was great, and he contacted Devon Doctors, I had a call back well within the hour as I have taken the first antibiotics with in the hour. Tesco Pharmacy had do the prescription within 10 mins of receiving it.... Could not of have better service, so .....

Thank you all!

I would like to pass your kind comments onto the 111 call advisor who assisted you. Would you be able to contact me, laura.martin@swast.nhs.uk or call 01392 453831, at your convenience, with the date of your call and your name and address? This would allow me to identify the staff involved and ensure they are recognised for the care they gave.
