"an almost pleasant stay in CGH"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I recently spent five days in this hospital starting off in EAU and ending up on Nayland ward, I was suffering initially from severe dehydration and diarhoa . The staff were efficient and friendly and the doctors were courteous and reassuring. The meals were better than I expected and the menu choices were quite extensive my one complaint was the that the carrots that had were almost raw and I had to leave them but the beef mince and chicken and leek tart were delicious. I left the hospital feeling in much better shape than when I went in and can only thank the staff very much for helping me to get better you are a great team.
