About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I had a laparoscopy Tuesday 3rd Sept and i can not be more happy! I am petrified of needles but the staff were so understanding and put me at ease. One of the staff even searched everywhere to find the smallest needle and i didn't even feel it :) I wish i could remember everyones name who i came into contact with, because they were so friendly and it's nice to feel like you are cared for. At a hospital in Suffolk, i didn't get this kind of care. They were quite short and sharp and didn't care one bit. I would like to thank everyone that looked after me in some way or another. (I was on the Elmstead Day Unit)
