"It would be better if they could send someone to see me at home"

About: Harmoni / NHS 111

(as a service user),

I needed to call the 111 service because I was feeling very anxious.

When I called they went through a lot of questions with me and then told me I should go to the hospital. I did go but the waiting time at the hospital was so long, because of my anxiety I could not think clearly and went home without being seen by the doctor.

It would be better if they could send someone to see me at home when I am feeling anxious. This would help to calm me down and feel better quicker.

Response from Amanda Mayo, NHS 111 Service Director, Harmoni

Thank you for taking the time to post your experiences of NHS111 on this website. I hope that you are feeling a bit better now.

May I suggest that, as you have a longstanding health issue, it may be advisable for you to speak to your own GP regarding the creation of a Special Note for our system so that when you call in, we can assess your needs using the information your GP has supplied us with in mind.
