Don't reckon 111 . They could have got a 24 hr doctor to call you. This was done with me once where I described my condition, next an Ambulance arrived within the hour .I just managed to shower in time. But that was an appendix.Pretty hard to talk on the phone when it really hurts. Equally so another crisis and an appointment was made by them for me to visit the injury unit, a poor substitute for a lost A and E. But there is two positives in their defence. Once they told me to let them know when the pain got worse, I went nuts and said I was off to the nearest A and E. Within 3minutes a different staff member rang me back Appologised and dealt with it. Getting an urgent appointment with the doctors these days often means phoning every day at 8am. How did it get to this.
Most Doctor's surgeries will offer same day appointments, but you need to either call them first thing in the morning - and they may not answer the phones, or go to the surgery and join the people that have queued up since dawn for the surgery to open, so that they can request a same day appointment,
Personally I have chosen a GP that looks to the future. If I want to be seen the same day, I go online, login to my surgery and after midnight I can book myself any number of appointments for that day.
