"Thank You NHS At Colchester."

About: Colchester General Hospital

I was taken by ambulance to Colchester General Hospital in the early hours of Wednesday the 18th. June. The member of staff that answered the 999call, the Ambulance team, the Doctors and Nurses in Triage and all the staff in Dedham Ward where I was taken were all kind, considerate, caring and very professional. An earlier visit to Elmstead Day Ward on the 27th. May for a minor operation was another example of the care and professionalism to be had at The Colchester General Hospital. My apologies for a late review. My grateful thanks to all. Betty Thomas.
