LETTER: New NHS 111 number is a joke!
A FEW weeks ago on a Friday night, I started being sick.
It kept me up all night and so on the Saturday morning, I thought I’d get help from the new 111 NHS number - but what a waste of my time and money.
When I got to speak to someone, they took a note of my symptoms and then passed me from pillar to post. I spoke to five different people, having to repeat myself to all five. I thought I was a parrot.
As I do not have or want a land line, it cost me £20 credit on my mobile and I had to go to a chemist and buy something to stop my sickness.
I will never be so stupid as to use this service again. It’s a joke.
