"First Class Care in Hour of Need"

About: Colchester General Hospital

On May Bank Holiday Monday my husband was injured when a faulty step ladder collapsed. The ambulance came quickly, the paramedics were skilled, efficient and reassuring. At Colchester Hospital, despite being very busy, he was dealt with promptly by caring and skilled medical staff and upon discharge was assisted into our car. What wonderful service we received in our hour of need and how grateful we are to them all. Thank you for first class care.
