In December, following a pre-arranged appointment, I spent FIVE hours held in a cubicle at the Elmstead Day Unit, awaiting treatment, intermittently receiving (often contradictory) instructions.
After being prepared for the planned surgery, I was abruptly sent away, untreated. It was most a distressing and traumatising experience. Colchester General Hospital continues to burnish its reputation.
