Has he tried any remedies

Does he have any other health problems or takes regular medication for anything?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
He is diabetic has bowel cancer,and has had quadruple heart bypass

ok, due to his health issues

then he's high risk for chest infection and covid

If you calll 111 they can book him in with a Dr to examine him in case he needs antibiotics

But what you can do in the meantime is salt and water gargles, ginger and lemon tea , and steaming

To save you money, you dont need me to tell you the same thing over the phone

Your Dad needs to be seen by a Dr so you should call 111
