"The Satff are amazing"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

Over the last two weeks I have been a patient at the hospital initially for assesment prior to an operation and then for the operation. I visited the pre admisions and physio. dept. and then was admitted to Mersea ward for surgery. The thing that amazed me was the energy levels of all the staff, nothing was too much trouble and everyone seemed to display a love of the work they were doing. The care I recieved at a busy time for the hospital could not have been bettered, even the food tasted good..

I cannot thank the staff enough for the way they treated me and other patients in the general area of the ward.
