"Excellent Care"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I had an 8 day stay in the Wivenhoe Ward in November 2014. During my time there every one was as kind and caring as you could hope for.

The Meals were Hot and nutricious and all the Staff were as pleasant and helpful as they could be.

I have since attended as an Outpatient and I had a Prostate Operation in June 2015 and found a similar experience.

I have also attended, both at Colchester and Clacton, some different departments including Audiology and had an Angiogram and I have always found the Staff to be excellent.

I have heard today that Colchester Hospital is inadequate and in my experience this is totally inaccurate and an insult to the Professionalism of the Staff
