"my husband's treatment"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff for the expert care my husband was given following the heart attack he just before Christmas. He was on Dedham Ward. The ward was clean and spotless. He was checked on hourly as his blood pressure kept dropping. He was monitored constantly. After 3 days he was taken to Basildon where he had a stent inserted. He was then returned to Colchester and the following day he was discharged with all his medication ready for him to take home. If only I could give the same praise to the paramedics. If it wasn't for our wonderful GP my husband may not have survived. Thank you very much.
