"Diabetic Medicine - concerns"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I have been to many hospitals for Endocrinology over the past 12 years and CGH is awful - certain member of staff (DSN) does not understand the holistic needs of a patient at all -the medical team is just as bad to be honest.

My care has been awful - I ask for help and all I get is to see a DSN and Psychologist.. there is little access to better care unless you fit a certain criteria. If you were diabetic here I would consider going elsewhere.
