I'm an NHS 111 overnight call handler. AMA!
What it says on the tin really. I work for the NHS in England and we have a 111 health service for when it's not as urgent as 999. For example if you need a doctor and it's the evening or the weekend, we have out of hours GPs. We have to perform a thorough assessment over the phone asking many questions that don't immediately seem relevant, but enable us to be safe and rule out worst-case scenarios. Then we direct you to the most appropriate service depending on your answers.
- obviously will not be divulging any details about celebrities that may or may not have called.
- "most disgusting?" Questions are MOST welcome!! I have loads. Ask away.
