"Nothing but praise for the services"
Posted by benjipete (as ),
I recently was unable to lie down and sleep as I felt I could not breath. I had been like this for a whole week, standing at an open window at 1am 2am 3am etc. I decided to see my GP who advised that I had a chest infection and prescribed a course of antibiotics. As I did not feel any better after day 2 I contacted NHS24 and after a lengthy assessment I was advised to attend the emergency out of service at Kings Cross Hospital and was given an appointment within less than two hours. I saw Dr Harrold who gave me a good examination and explained that the problem was the mucus in my chest. She advised an over the counter medicine and prescribed a course of seven sleeping tablets, I am feeling a lot better now and have nothing but praise for the excellent and professional service from both the call handlers at NHS24 and Dr Harrold.
