"Great Tey Ward."

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I have just returned home from Total Knee Replacement Surgery. I had my operation on 1st. November 2013 and I spent 6 days in Great Tey Ward. I would like to send my sincere and complete thanks to the doctor all the Nursing Staff and to the Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapy Departments. Also, the Cleaning Staff and the Catering Staff and the " behind-the-scenes " Staff who also do such a grand job....it was faultless and seamless...the Care was First Class and you all listened to me..and for that I am Truly Grateful. There was much laughter and I had a " Happy Blub ". I will make a full and complete recovery all thanks to your Expertise. When I am asked where I had my knee replaced I shall stand tall and say with Pride, Colchester General Hospital..Great Tey Ward. ;o)
