"Elmstead Unit"

About: Colchester General Hospital

A big thank you to all the staff on the Elmstead Day Unit following my Lithotripsy which was performed on 14/10/15.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and put me at my ease before and after the procedure. I felt that they had plenty of time for me and I did not feel rushed.

A very pleasant experience!

I would also like to thank the wonderful radiographers who performed the procedure but I realise that they are employed by a separate company.

Please would it be possible for the company name to be forwarded to me?

To anyone reading this who is to undergo a Lithotripsy - there is absolutely no need to worry!

Many thanks!

Response from Colchester General Hospital

Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to contact us in this way. It is heartening to learn that you had such a positive experience.

I've taken the liberty of sharing your email with the relevant staff because I know they will appeciate it as much as I do.

The private company you refer to is called Focus Medical Services.

Again, thank you.

Mark Prentice, Head of External Relations
