Response from Colchester General Hospital

The patient's consultant, ward sister and myself met with the family, to help clarify the treatment plan, and establish a way forward. Hopefully the perception of nothing being done has been challenged and proven otherwise. However, I think this will need to be revisited on a regular basis. We proposed and agreed with the family to meet again this week. Please email me directly if anything needs clarication or you need further assistance.
