"A&E Sunday morning"
About: Colchester General Hospital Colchester General Hospital Colchester CO4 5JL
My partner brought me in to A&E early Sunday morning as I was in acute abdominal pain. Our wait was relatively short, some 40 minutes, I was the triaged by a very kind and sympathetic nurse who got me in for treatment quickly.
I was attended to by an agency nurse. I have to say they were extremely detailed, conscientious and considerate of my condition.
Despite them being new to the hospital and an agency nurse, they were a credit to the hospital and the department.
Considering the pressures both the NHS and the staff are under, I cannot fault the service and attention I received.
We only really hear the negatives about the NHS, but I cannot praise the staff enough and this nurse in particular. Please pass on my thanks for the prompt attention and treatment to all those involved so they know they are appreciated.
