"4 day visit in A&E + CCU"

About: Colchester General Hospital

My partner was taken into the hospital after I bought her to A&E with breathing troubles. We were triaged within 5 minutes and was straight into resus from there. The Resus team were awesome in quickly finding the problem and getting the appropriate IVs in to start treatment.

She spent the next few days in CCU and I was impressed at every staff member who we dealt with. Everyone was friendly, knowledgable and made her feel as comfortable as they could.
