"Badley treated"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I spent 3 weeks at col hos where i was treated awful i was transferred to clacton with the most awful bed sores down below due to neglect wich took about 5 weeks to improve but not fully recover the level of hygene was disgusting as was the way i was treated no feelings and no respect, the only kind nurses where the ones called the poppy organisation. thank goodness for them as they did try to make me comfortable they got cream for me but the sores were so bad that not much had any result but at least they tried and were kind to me, i hope i never have to be admitted to this hospital again its the worse hos[ital that ive ever stayed in. the poppy nurses were at clacton rehab i was in kate grant ward.
