"Elmstead Day Care"

About: Colchester General Hospital

The staff were efficient and friendly. The theatre staff quickly put me at ease and I was included in all the aspects of my care. From start (seeing the consultant) to finish the service was excellent. If the staff hadn't mentioned it I would never have known I was in a mobile operating theatre. Although never a pleasure to have to go into hospital it was made as pleasant as it could be.
