"save my life"

About: Colchester General Hospital

On 3/8/16 i dialed 999 feeling ill. From the moment the First Responder arrived in Halstead within minutes. An Ambulance car arrived moments after and the paramedic decided to drive me to Colchester A&E them-self rather than wait for ambulance.

The whole of the emergency teams and Cardiac teams with various aspects treated me with respect and they all went beyond duty to not only keep me alive, but also transfer me to and from Basildon cardiac centre, and back. The guys who took me there and returned me to Colchester, Cardiac drivers brilliant guys and great respect to them.

All the staff at Colchester emergency and all Cardiac departments I can never praise them enough, nor could I have been cared for better than I had. The staff of Colchester Ambulance drivers, A&E departments and Cardiac departments staff. I can only massively Commend them all for everything they did for me.

Thank you all!

Your Very Humble people and I owe you more than I could ever show.

All my Thanks
