"Care of my dad"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

My dad was taken to Colchester Hospital on the 21st August 2013. He was reviewed straight away by a team of very efficient staff lead that evening by the Nurse in charge. We were all kept informed of what was happening. The Doctors and nurses all treated him with a great deal of dignity and respect despite the pressure they were under. He was transferred to EAU where we we're meet by welcoming staff. We left that evening feeling he was finally in safe hands and that he was being cared for. Thank you from GM family
