"Son's recent surgery"

About: Colchester General Hospital

We recently took my 10 year old son to the Children's Assessment Unit, suffering with suspected Appendicitis. He was admitted to the children's ward that evening, underwent surgery the following morning and then happily came home the following day. The staff at all levels were outstanding in terms of their care and dedication and created a very warm and calm atmosphere in the ward, making my son and us feel happy and assured that he was being well cared for.

Thank you to everybody on the ward.
