"Fantastic urgent care"

About: Colchester General Hospital

My 86 year old father was brought into A&E yesterday with a severe allergic reaction and suspected sepsis. He was treated really quickly - within minutes he was in a cubicle, had his cannula put in and then was given a succession of drugs. He was moved to resus, until he was stable enough to go to a ward. His care and treatment yesterday was some of the best he has received and we are very grateful for everything that was done.

Believe it or not, he is well enough to leave hospital today!
