I was in extreme pain on Sunday morning (31July 2016) and rang 111 to get advice.
After answering some questions I was told that a doctor would contact me within 2 hours.The doctor called me within a few minutes and invited me to Buckingham Community Hospital within half an hour.
I was seen immediately by a doctor who diagnosed a kidney infection and gave me lots of advice and a prescription for antibiotics.
I only wish I had taken the doctor's name because the doctor was brilliant, friendly, empathetic, courteous and supportive. It is so reassuring to have access to this type of service in Buckingham and I'd like to thank everyone involved, 111 service and the doctor for such excellent service.
