Response from Colchester General Hospital

I am sorry to read that you had such a poor experience in our A&E department and I am very concerned by it.

I have already forwarded your comment to various colleagues there. In addition, I would encourage you to email more details, including a daytime contact number, to info@colchesterhospital.nhs.uk so that we can investigate this matter and report back to you.
