I had been bitten by something on a recent trip to London, it hadn't been that bad so I just ignored it. On Saturday morning I woke up to find some of the bits completely swelled up and very scary looking.
I'm not someone to often call the doctors but I decided after looking it up online that I should contact someone. I phoned NHS 24 and they got a doctor to call me back within 20 minutes.
I was told to either go to the surgery or get some anti hystemines, but to be safe I decided to drop into the out of hours GP practice at Glasgow's Western hospital.
I was seen straight away, and the nurse who saw me was fantastic. Very friendly, informative and made sure I was ok.
I'd just like to thank NHS 24 and the doctor and nurse who saw me for making it an easy, not frightening and speedy experience.
