"Could not fault this hospital"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

After 13 years of excessive pain and no movement in my shoulder following a serious R.T.A. was treated at the Queens Hospital, Romford but no member of staff would listen that my pain was in the shoulder but insisted it was the break in my arm. After a fall I suffered in my home I attended Colchester Hospital, finally after 13 years of pain somebody had the sense to say I had a problem in my shoulder. Thank you so much To the wonderful staff at Colchester and since I have had a operation done and the pain has gone. Cannot fault this hospital in anyway.
