"My stay and treatment at Colchester Hospital"

About: Colchester General Hospital

On Friday the 16th 0f January 2015 i was admitted to A&E with an suspected hart attack, which it turned out to be. From the ambulance staff throe A&E the care was first class. On Saturday i was transfer to Debden ward were again the nursing staff the doctors you could see are all over worked but all had time to answer all my quires and the nurses treated the patents with kindness and dignity at all times. We can all criticise its very easy to do but i for one could not do the job they do under the presser they have put on them, and i can only thank them for saving my life. I then attended Basildon Hospital were a stent was fitted again the treatment and care i recived at all times was first class perhaps the people compiling the reports should spend some time as a patient they my see the work the staff do in a diffrerent light
