"Treated with respect"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I was treated with respect and dignity in all departments and wards. The Nursing staff and Doctors were excellent. The food was good and I wasn't alone except at night which I didn't like. Lots of respect for the staff including the ancillary staff and other people involved in my care. I have sent an email with review setting out important points for change. The other thing I wanted to say was that there was a library came around and let me have a book so I was never bored. I was very seriously ill and in fact Colchester General once again saved my life. I have Luekemia and that was a very bad time I had. I was Nuetrophile-Sepsis so very dangerous. My Doctor is very positive and he has kept me going literally from the word go. I also have faith in Our God. I observed quite a lot and like to chat to whoever is about. So thank you Colchester General for all your compassion and kindness and skill. Years ago I would have died but technology has improved so much. Kind regards Margaret Dennis
