"Out of hours GP experience"

About: Leighton Hospital

Having telephoned 111 and then speaking to a clinician I was given an appointment to the out of hours on bank holiday Sunday. I was seen within 10 minutes of my given appt time. I saw an excellent out of hours GP who after examining me arranged immediate admission to north staffs with a quinsy which required immediate attention. This may not be the same experience for everyone but I was thankful for the efficiency and professionalism that I received thank you !
