"Professional, timely, friendly, caring & polite"

About: Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust

I attended A/E very concerned that I had a recurrence of a serious, life threatening health problem. From checking in to being discharged every person was professional & caring. The staff listened carefully to me. All procedures were explained. I felt safe and thoroughly investigated. Happily I was fine. I was even given a doughnut-an unexpected bonus!

I feel lucky to have been seen & treated in this department at this hospital.
