"The Best Hospital in Essex"

About: Colchester General Hospital

What I liked

My mother was rushed to A & E after suffering a stroke in a home for Dementia I was inform straight away and went to Colchester General Hospital from the start the staff was so helpful.

My Mother was then taken to Gainsborough Ward in the stroke ward the nurses and care staff treated my Mother the way I would they show much kindest and care not only to my Mum but to me too, they let me stay with her for 14 nights in a side ward and gave me a bed so I could be with my Mother on the 15th day she passed away and again the nurses was kind and helpful.

I could not thank the all the staff in stroke ward enough there is no wards I can use to say Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart..

What could be improved

There is nothing I would improve.

Anything else?

I feel the nurse's and care staff do not get enough praise for all the hard work they do, and not enough good feed back is made public.
