"Pleasantly surprised, felt safe and secure"

About: Colchester General Hospital

Despite the recent bad publicity of Colchester General Hospital, I can only say the staff were second to none for their nursing and medical care .my condition worsened because I was terrified to go into hospital, but I couldn't have been more wrong, the Consultant and his team's bedside manner made me feel completely safe and grateful that I was there in the care.
