"Staff care"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I found every single member of staff friendly approachable and caring towards me during my stay, I would like to especially point out how grateful I am to the surgical team as us patients pass through their doors and sometimes do not appreciate the dedication and time these guys took to be so good at their job. I had a lovely chat with the anesthtist who made me feel very relaxed as I was about to go through to surgery. If you can pass on this message to the team who looked after me I would be very grateful. Thank you every one :) x
