Where out of hours lead….
As you can guess – yes I drove 20 odd miles ( each way) to be told
“Go and get a second opinion from your GP”
Contact GP surgery and they didn’t ask a million questions they offered me an appointment with the paramedic that afternoon.
The paramedic was lovely and sent me straight to hospital for surgical evaluation.
