"In good hands"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

From the time I entered Day Surgery I was well looked after. The nurses,anesthetist,consultant were all lovely and explained every thing that would be happening and the consultant showed me some pictures after my operation. I woke up in the recovery room with a nurse by my side which made me feel well looked after she took my blood pressure ,it did not take me long to wake up and she took me back to the ward and I had a lovely cup of tea and jam on toast. The nurse checked my blood pressure again and just kept checking I was feeling ok and as soon as she took my drip down and I was able to pass urine I was aloud home. This is the second time in about the last 7 years that I have had day surgery and both time have been very good The best care ever. Thank you to everyone that looked after me. Mrs Patricia Flynn
