"The attention and care I received was of..."

About: Colchester General Hospital

What I liked

The EAU - Emergency Assessment Unit, were prompt in beginning their thorough procedure and in finding me a bed space in Peldon Ward, where treatment began without delay.

The consultant and his staff explained the procedure planned and the nursing staff were attentive and reassuring, despite the heavy demands on their time on both day and night shifts. Their friendly manner was appreciated and it was good to see how they worked as a team supporting one another under pressure.

Can I also thank the caterers and their staff. The choice and standard of meals were very good and well presented, with the vegetables deserving a particular mention.

Anything else?

I would like to place on record my thanks for the professional and efficient treatment by all the staff of the Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, and in particular the Peldon Ward, during my recent stay.
