My 2 year old son became increasingly unwell. After a quick call to 111 he was assessed promptly and we were given an out of hours GP appointment at the Western General Hospital. During the consultation it was noted my son had low oxygen levels and increased respiratory effort and an ambulance was called to take us to RHSC Edinburgh. After a short stay in A&E and an overnight stop in ward 1 for observations my son was discharged with antibiotics for a chest infection. It was a scary 12 hours and I wanted to thank everyone involved in his care.
