"Medical Assesment Unit"

About: Colchester General Hospital

My Mother was taken, as an emergency, to CGH 3x in as many weeks with heart related syptoms. Twice she was sent home with no resolution, the 2nd time, discharged by an ENT consultant. On this current admission and following a heart attack which she was obviously suffering the 2nd time, it has emerged she has 99% blockage in one artery and 60% in another and needs a bypass op. I have nothing but praise for the treatment she is receiving now in Deham ward but feel the agenda in the MAU is clear out ASAP.
