About: Colchester General Hospital

How disgusting not only was I unsatisfied with the department but three others that waited the five hours we did thought it was wrong! A lady sat there bleeding from eyes nose and mouth no one came to give her medical care just left her sat there! Give us the wrong medication and the gp told us it was just fat, went to docors was told it was sprained. Thanks for nothing, 5hours of my life wasted due to people that carnt do there job properly!
