"my treatment and care at colchester hospital..."

About: Colchester General Hospital

I was admitted to Colchester hospital for removal of small bladder cancer

very shortly after my pre ops were checked out,

this did not take very long, all the staff were very patient friendly and professional .

On the day of my operation I was explained about the surgery and talked to by the anaesthetist

doctor and surgeon, all very helpful , operation went well, and after recovery I was taken to

Mersea ward no 4, where I was very well looked after by all the staff,the nurses were never far

away if needed, I found them all very friendly helpful and caring, I was released late the next day and I am now feeling well.

Thank you to all the staff involved in my operation and recovery.

One more thing I would say is the food was excellent .
