"Very thorough and helpful"

About: Harmoni / NHS 111 Hillingdon Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I am 84 and on the day in question I wasn't feeling well. I have a medallion which I need to press to contact Careline. I was feeling light headed so they said they would ring 111 for me. When 111 called, they were very thorough and asked helpful questions. They suggested I take it easy and if I was unwell, I should call my GP. 10 minutes later they called back and said the best thing was to call an ambulance and go to Hillingdon Hospital. I don't know if they had access to my medical records as I have a history of heart problems and had prostate cancer 11 years ago. I got my son to take me to the hospital and was there a couple of days.
