Hello, I am Dr Helen, a UK doctor.

 

I am sorry to hear your son is unwell and agree that he needs to be checked by a doctor.

 

The easiest way to have him seen would be to go to an A&E department (Accident and Emergency) in your nearest hospital. They will have all the necessary staff and facilities.

 

From Golders Green your nearest two hospitals are:

 

The Royal Free Hospital

Pond Street
London
NW3 2QG

020 7794 0500

 

 

The Whittington Hospital
Magdala Avenue
London
N19 5NF
Tel: 020 7272 3070

 

If you don't have transport, any local taxi driver will know where these hospitals are.

 

Both these are NHS hospitals and are open 24 hours a day.

 

Take your Insurance documents with you. There should be no problems with you being seen in an NHS hospital and, especially as it is a Saturday, it would take longer to try and access medical care through other sources.

 

I hope he is soon feeling better.

 

Best wishes.
