"Great Hospital"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Besides my own personal positive feelings, I have over the past few months have had a grandchild with damage to her hand /wrist, step daughter whom had a burst appendix, but an elderly mother with a hip replacement operation. I can only praise all the working members of Colchester hospital. I personally am sick of the bad press, it portrays a negative view of the brilliant free service. My medical problem at the moment can not be corrected at this time. So just look at what these fantastic people can do, and how well they do it. All ways pleasant, helpful, nothing is too much. Wish people would spend more time giving thanks instead of negative vibes. and they have to deal with our ignorance. they truely saints each and every one. Thank you all.
