"Mary Barron Suite"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Being told you have cancer and being offered chemotherapy is never a good day but thanks to all the staff at the Mary Barron Suite what could be a nightmare became a relief if not a pleasure. It is almost impossible to state how good the staff are, from the receptionist, the nurses and the ancillary staff everyone does every thing possible to keep you informed. No question is to silly or difficult and all were answered with good grace and in a timely fashion. Having Chemo. is not something you want to do but if you need the treatment this suite is one place I cannot recommend highly enough.
