"Pure professionals"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Admitted to EAU from A&E with chest pains I was made to relax as the staff showed concern for my condition. Then admitted to Dedham ward for further tests and an angiogram was arranged. All the time I felt comfortable that the staff were really interested in how I felt. Angiogram dept. continued with the shown interest as before. I am not the best patient and they dealt with my anxiety in a really caring way. I couldn't fault the care I received, even if I wanted to.
