"Thank you to the staff of Fordham Ward"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I want to express our deep appreciation of the care which your hospital provided to my mother-in-law, Marigold Jaques, in her last days.

Marigold was admitted from A&E to Fordham Ward on Thursday 21st March and, having been placed on the Liverpool Care Pathway, died there on Saturday 30th.

We would like to thank the sisters and staff nurses, as well as all their helpers.

Their care and compassion - for Marigold and for all of us in her family - just complemented the obvious professionalism of the whole team. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Response from Colchester General Hospital

Many thanks for your comments and taking the time to submit them. It is always gratifying to read emails like yours and to know that the work of staff in the NHS is appreciated as I know it can be an effort to write at a time like this. We try really hard to improve our services based on the comments we receive.

We have a quarterly At Our Best Awards scheme which recognises staff achievements and thanks them for what they do. It has a team category, an individual and a volunteer category.
