"Great service and consideration"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Great service on 2cnd January. Am from New Zealand visiting family and had need for checking my condition...rang 111 who advised going to JR as soon as possible..triaged in 30 minutes,X-ray and ECG and bloods done and discharged with a prescription in just over 2 hours... All done in busy environment . Had thought NZ had a great health service but this experience of mine shows you have a great service....my possible concern was that I needed to go to a A&E And not local gp? Amazed that no charges were made as although we have reciprocal arrangements between countries some charge may stop some " unnecessary" time involvement for minor situations which could be sorted by say a pharmacist.
