"Lovely staff"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Anything else?

I went in on a Saturday morning for a foot injury, with concerns about a fracture. I arrived at 7am and was out by 8:30 am. Staff were very friendly and professional and addressed any and all questions and concerns. I felt the new waiting area was clean as were the new washrooms. I did make a point of going at a time when I felt the department would be less busy. My injury was minor, but after a quick call to the North Colchester Walk in I was informed that the A&E would be best. Remember, with minor accidents, make an informed decision about where to go! A quick call and google search and I knew that the A&E was where to go as I might (and did) need an xray. But there are loads of other services between Colchester, Ipswich and even Harwich that address minor injury needs.
