What I liked
After going through 2 different NHS places I did not have a lot of hope with that one.., and I was wrong. I called them, describing my symptoms and situation I was in and they gladly said to come in so a GP could see me immediately. I got booked by a nurse and asked to wait in nice and clean waiting room, on the screen it said, that the waiting time would be 4 hours, but I think it is over there just scare people off, so they come only with serious illnesses. After just 15 minutes I was called by a doctor and went to one of the rooms there. I suffered from severe tonsillitis, with body temperature going up to 39.5C and that was after taking penicillin for 4 days! The GP checking me knew what he was doing, checked me properly, listen to all my story and prescribed me different antibiotics. Thanks to him and whole A&E unit there I am able to write that today, because yesterday I was lying in bed shaking like a fresh jelly.
