"I still had no callback therefore I took him to A& E"
Posted by dkny2275 (as ),
I called NHS 24 for my brother one Saturday at 1pm. I explained his symptoms. He had been bitten by something on my hand. His hand and arm was red and very swollen and getting worse. He had loss of vision, dizziness, feeling faint and my lips numb and trembling. I was told I would receive a call back regarding being seen by a doctor.
at 6 pm that evening I still had no callback therefore I took him to A& E. When I went I was told he had to see a doctor immediately. He was then told he had poison tracking up his arm and a suspected mini stroke. I feel that NHS 24 have been very irresponsible in this case. Had I not taken it upon myself to take him A& E I've no idea what might have happened. To this date I have still had no callback.
