"Gynacology department"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Today I had to have a hystoscopy, I can not believe the care I recieved, it was fantastic, I had a hca by my side holding my hand, a nurse who was lovely and the doctor doing the procedure was so caring. They were all talking to me throughout making me feel calmer and were reassuring me the whole time, working myself in general practice I hear to often that colchester is a terrible place but I have always found them to be excellant whether it's myself or a member of my family.
