"My Asthma Attack"

About: NHS 111 St Mary's Hospital

(as the patient),

Phoned 111 as I had a very tight chest and they answered quickly. Acted in a professional manner and asked the right questions.

They reassured me throughout. And gave me advice to go to the hospital. I wanted to know how thankful I am for them as I would never have gone up and would have left it till I was probably in an ambulance.

Seen quickly at the hospital, doctor was friendly, did some tests to find out I was having an asthma attack. Gave me all the right treatment and reassured me again throughout. As I didn't realise I had asthma, they helped explain and provide me with the right medication. I felt 100 times better for this amazing service. And would like to commend the NHS for this, as it basically saved my life.
