"Thanks to great Tey staff."

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I have just come home after having my second knee replacement this year. Every single member of staff I have seen has treated me with great care. The staff on great Tey ward are all fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I have particular thanks to the staff in theatre and recovery and every single member of staff on great Tey (not just the nursing staff). Thank you all for making my stay (I can't say pleasurable) tolerable, as a knee replacement is not the most comfortable thing to have done. You are all wonderful. Carol szmyr
