"GP after hours"

About: New Victoria Hospital (Glasgow) NHS 24 / NHS 24 (111 service)

(as the patient),

I had an emergeny that after all occured not to be as serious as I thought so to start with. At first I called 111 and asked for help. The Lady who answered my call was very polite and helpful, she organized a GP appointment for me quickly.

I went to see a Doctor immediately, and I was really happy with care I received. Professional, friendly and very caring.

I just want to say a big thank you.
