"Excellent orthopaedic service"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I had a hip replacement just over a year ago. After my initial referral to him everything went very smoothly and I was seen and scheduled in for surgery in a very short space of time. After the operation I was discharged quickly and all has gone really well during my recovery. The operation changed my life - one year on and I feel 10 years younger! I am so grateful to the NHS and Colchester Hospital.
