It's easy to criticise...
but not everyone does
Many people send cards and tributes about the care they and their relatives have received. We receive thousands every year from our hospitals. Some are very poignant - others make you smile. Some go into great details - others simply say 'thank you'.
Whatever they say, we know they're from the heart.
We have created a display of just a few of the many emails* received via the Trust's website. If you get a chance, have a look at it. It's on the ground floor corridor of the main building at Colchester General Hospital. There are also some on the same corridor as Senses restaurant.
