"Late night emergency frightening experience."

I rang 111 and was immediately given positive reassuring assistance. Within minutes I received a cheerful supportive and so reassuring call politely asking me to attend a special GP clinic at East Surrey Hospital. My caller greeted me by name on my arrival and assured me that I would be seen by a GP very shortly. Within less than ten minutes I had my condition diagnosed and given the antibiotics to treat my condition. I left ESH feeling reassured and very very fortunate to have received such professional caring first class treatment by such impressive people doing a difficult job with poise and much more importantly, as truly caring individuals who functioned as a great team. Thank you. I was in pain and very frightened. I could not have been in better hands. Our local NHS is in great hands!!!

Response from Esh Winning Surgery

Dear Sandra

Thank you for providing feedback on your recent NHS experience.

I am very pleased to hear that you had a positive experience and that you are happy with the care you received however your comment appears to have been sent to the wrong NHS Trust.

I am not sure if you are able to put this on again as it has come to County Durham & Darlington Foundation Trust and the heading appears to be for a GP surgery in Esh Winning which I don't think is correct either.

Thank you for leaving your comments on NHS Choices.
