"Very friendly and professional care"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Today I had to take my husband to A&E after he suffered lacerations to his leg after a mishap with an angle grinder. From the moment we arrived we were met with kindness and calm effectiveness from all the staff in the reception, triage, X-ray and minor trauma department. We were delt with quickly the treatment was explained at every stage and after care advice was given. My husband was X rayed cleaned up, stitched and his wound dressed all within 2 and a half hours, very impressive. So we would like to say thank you very much to everyone involved.
