"5 hour wait!"

About: Colchester General Hospital / Accident and emergency

Only one doctor on duty last night 30/8/16 at 8.45pm.

I finally left the hospital at 1.45am - 5 hours later.

I was seen quickly by the nurse and also x ray which all worked well and staff were very pleasant.

The waiting room was full with many people waiting over 4 hours and one person waited 10 hours. Not acceptable -
