Phoned NHS 111 to ask advice on shooting pains in buttock from a back injury, based on the answers the lady informed me that I should attend A&E within 4 hours.
Arrived at A&E to be greeted politely by the reception staff, was called in to see the doctor within 5 minutes, discussed the symptoms and had my back/spine examined.
The doctor advised that the shooting pains would ease within time but it could take 4 to 6 weeks and offered advice on how to best cope.
I was in and out of A&E within 30 minutes having had a great service.
The last time that I attended A&E Reading was a few years ago when my daughter broke her arm and a great service was received then as well so I would like to say thank you to the whole team within the A&E department of the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
