About: Colchester General Hospital

My mother was in AEU with kidney failure and bleeding internally. The care she received by the staff was First Class. The consultant and the staff treated my mother, 85 years old at the time, as though she was their grandmother with all the respect and dignity befitting her age. My mother and other patients I saw in their care were given 100% attention. I must admit I was surprised at the level of attention everyone received. The words Thank You do not seem enough - Thank You for giving my mother back to me. She still sings your praises. I am sorry as I should have written this at the time - you deserved this review.
