"A and E"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I came into A and E with an extremely bad migraine...3rd day of vomiting with this.(I had been to my GP the previous day)..and was treated with care and thoughtfulness, given anti=vomiting drugs, pain relief and re=hydration fluids. When this was complete I was sent home. The next morning I became very ill again with the migraine and was taken back. They repeated the treatment and I was taken home later in a hospital car and a nurse who took me into my home and checked all was well. They were so kind. Please pass on my thanks. Pat Savory
