Hey, I need some advice.
Recently a couple hours ago I started getting ill and I've just been on call to my mum, she's a nurse. I described my symptoms to her and she said I might need to get to a doctors

Except here's the thing: its nearly the weekend and the doctors will be shut.

So basically, should I ask my parents to take me home, so I have access to care if something goes wrong or should I stick it out and hope for the best?

you could always ring tomorrow morning and see if they have any emergency appointments, or any appointments in general.
you could attend a walk in clinic, they'd be able to give you any medication and are open most days/nights depending on which you attend. (i'd avoid A&E, as it doesn't sound too severe at the moment).
if you want to go home, then do, theres nothing better than having people look after you tbh, but if you think its just general illness or dont want to go home, then don't, many people survive illness without going home.

What did your mum say especially as she is a nurse and will know about you and your symptoms?

I'd call NHS 111 and get them to advise you on what's best

I have used them a few times and didn't find them very helpful. Guess worth a shot.
