"Layer Marney ward"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I was moved from critical care after chest infection/pneumonia to layer marney ward to continue my care. I wanted to write a review as my mother and I were so impressed with the Ward Sister who listened to her concerns about me and delayed my discharge to make sure I was ready in all aspects of my health. Despite being incredibly busy, this showed that the ward sister found the time to listen to my concerns at great length and do her utmost to help me, for which I am very grateful. I also had amazing care in the Critical care unit, according to my family, of which I can remember very little. Our experience of Colchester Hospital was very positive and my family and I are indebted to the staff that looked after me so well. Thank You
