"Christmas in hospital"

About: Basildon University Hospital

My husband had to have by-pass surgery just before Christmas 2013 and was lucky enough to be looked after by the best cardiac staff you could find anywhere. His Christmas was in a daze for him, but we, his family were made very welcome and were very impressed by the excellent care he received. From the day he was admitted to his eventual release 11 days later he had nothing but the very best care from all the staff at Colne and Chelmer wards. His surgeon saw him frequently and he was kept fully informed of what was happening to him at all times. Absolutely brilliant care the whole time.
