Had to use NHS 24 this morning for my daughter have to say the service was excellent & so quick. The nurse on the phone was lovely & very calming. Got a phone call within 10mins to be seen by GP Dr Martins in CGH, he was very nice aswell.

Earlier this year I was in absolute agony with a frozen shoulder (on-going !!!) at 6 o' clock in the morning !!!!! I was actually crying my eyes out, and felt so disorientated because I was in so much pain !!!!

My OH phoned NHS 24 and they were fantastic - due to circumstances (my OH actually had a pre-arranged hospital appt later that morn, so wasn't allowed to drive) my OH couldn't drive me to CGH, so a taxi was laid on for me and to bring me home!!

As said before, the "nurse" on the other end of the phone was absolutley great and so caring and thoughtful with her attitude regarding getting information !!

Thoroughly recommend this service to anyone who is in pain :)

I have had a great service from nhs24 over the past few days giving advice and even phoning to ask if i am ok. Also they were excellent in phoning me when "himself" was dying and they were always quick to send a doctor to him. Never had any complaints against them at all. all have been very friendly and helpful.
