"Visit to A & E"

About: Colchester General Hospital

On the advice of the 111 service, I took my mother to A & E at Colchester General Hospital on a recent Sunday morning. We could not have asked for more! She was triaged within 5 minutes, and taken to a cubicle in Majors within 15 minutes of arrival. She had many investigations, including a CT scan and bloods, and was seen by the stroke nurse. Luckily they could not find too much wrong, and she was discharged home later in the day. Well done A & E staff, you were brilliant!
