"Cannot find fault with the care my son..."

About: Colchester General Hospital

What I liked

Last Thursday my 4 year old son had his tonsils and adenoids removed.

My husband and I cannot fault the time Max was with you. It was obviously more worrying for us as parents than Max as he was too young to understand what was happening.

Even the porter who transported us to theatre was happy, talked to Max and made what could have been a scary trip into a fun one!

Nothing was too much trouble for staff. Max and I stayed on the Children’s Ward overnight on Thursday, and Max woke about 3.30 am asking for a yogurt. I found a nurse who within minutes returned with one for him. The same can be said for a milkshake he requested mid morning on Friday.

The play scheme ladies were fab, especially one member of staff, and the toys and equipment available for the children to use were everything you could wish for!

The whole experience was a happy one for Max and he has said he would like another sleepover in Hospital ( hopefully we wont have to do it again though!!)

Well done!!
