"Excellent Staff. Efficient treatment"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I was brought in to the A&E department on Monday for treatment for something brought on by my own stupid behaviour. I was in a lot of pain and felt very unwell but was given pain relief very quickly and reassured that I wasn't wasting the ambulance crews time. The A&E was really busy but the Doctor and staff nurse were with me straight away. I was given a cannala straight away ( my veins are bad) and was given strong pain relief. The staff were very kind and quick to diagnose me and sort me out. Thank you all. Well done.
