"Cardiology department"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I would like to thank all the staff in the Cardiology department at Colchester Hostpital. I was taken in to A & E in January after collapsing at my daughters in Halstead. I was then moved to the recovery ward and seen by the cardiologist who immediately suggested I have a Reveal fitted to monitor my heart. This was fitted in February (1 month after the initial collapse). After collapsing at home in March my wife rang the cardio dept. and was told to bring me in to have the Reveal downloaded. I was told I needed a Pacemaker which was fitted in April. They have since tweaked the Pacemaker and nothing is too much trouble, ring them up and they see you straight away. I cannot thank them enough, Nurses, Reception, Doctors, the whole Team are so helpful. Thanks again Robert Herbert
