"Norwich Primary Care, Out of Hours, 111, and the NNUH"

About: East Of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust / NHS 111 Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

(as a staff member),

I would like to thank you for the out-of-hours service provided to me yesterday.

I needed some attention to a wound from a recent operation and contacted NHS 111, via the telephone instructions provided on the Taverham Partnership web-site. I was provided with an immediate appoint at the Norwich Community Hospital, where the out-of-hours doctor referred me (with letter) to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, where the problem was quickly resolved.

From making the initial call at ~7: 30, I was back home by ~10: 30. Excellent systems and care services. Thank you.
