"Contact and advice received from NHS 24 "

About: NHS 24

(as the patient),

Recently I had severe continual bouts of sickness, stomach cramps etc. This lasted for several hours and was very concerning as am usually very well. I was concerned re my hydration levels as I could not even take sips of water without being really ill.

I contacted NHS 24 for advice, and the people who took the call, both the initial point of contact and the nursing advisor were excellent. They were very patient, helpful and calming. The advice given was very practical.
