"Infected toe - struggling to get an appointment"

About: Leeds PCT NHS Direct NHS Trust

(as the patient),

I have been trying to see the doctor for a week or so for a morning appointment but when I phone no appointment.

My toe got so bad I had to go see NHS Direct for treatment and they told me to see my doctor. Still cannot get a morning appointment.

Response from NHS Direct

I'm glad you found NHS Direct helpful but sorry to hear about the difficulty with your local service, which Leeds PCT appear to have responded to already by advising you to contact their PALS line.
