My 4yr old has just had quite a severe attack, during attacks we are constantly doubting ourselves and its all because of the crap treatment she's had (or not had, more like!) from out of hours docs over the last few years. We never know if she's ""sick enough"" for us to ask for help. We fear we'll get judged or waste time. Nhs24 take so long to allocate us an appointment at out of hours, we go there & have to sit for ages in the waiting room (last time was 30mins),and by the time we see a doc, she's ok!
We don't know when or what to do
What is your rule of thumb on when to get help and what is your protocol for help? call nhs24? Phone 999? go straight to a&e?
