Dea r All,
I have clearly, either 'Bashed' myself and/ or received an Insect bite, on my left hand, near my Little Finger. It ha got slowly more, and more Inflamed as the day has progressed.
I telephoned the 111- GP service. A Very Pleasant lady, guided me through some- fairly basic- questions, and I truthfully said that 'I was worried, because of my Condition'. The lady informed me that she would Refere this to the, Out Of Hours Service, and that should recieve a call (within twelve Hours).
Well 'Blow me' about, three minutes later I had a call, and an appointment, at the local Minor Injuries Unit. My Mother took me there, I waited about fifteen minutes, Hand Washing- and Sanitisers- were available on arrival.
The, very pleasant, Doctor I saw examined my hand and decided that, it WAS 'quite swollen'. She drew a line arround it and, informed, me that she 'Would write me a Prescription BUT didn't want me to Take It, unless the Swelling Increased'. She didn't want to 'Overlaod' my system- with me being on so many other Drugs. The Doctor sent, the Prescription, Electonically and I 'picked it up' about twenty minutes later.
So within, round about an hour, I had seem a Doctor and received a Prescription, from a friendly Doctor.... What More could you ask for? Definitely Ten, Out Of Ten.
