I phoned the nhs 24 out of hours and basically had to be adamant that I wanted my 5 month old son to be seen by a doctor. When I got an appointment and went to see the doctor they told me my son had some sort of viral infection coming on him. That night my son took very ill his breathing nearly stopped and was having seizures so I phoned nhs 24 back up and they sent an ambulance out.
When we got took to hospital yet found out my son had a brain bleed! And was an underlying blood condition that had not been picked up on, even though I had been to the nhs 24 numerous times previously with my son and they kept telling me he had a cold. Hadn't my son been seen that night he would of died within no time. My son has Haemophilia and is now getting regular medication thanks to Yorkhill children's hospital who have been amazing.
