It is good to read a story where people are happy with their medical treatment. Asthma attacks can be terrifying and I have also attended Colchester General and received sympathetic and professional care.

It is a sad reflection really, when all you can say is about the age of the mother in this story. As Bdaguy stated '' it's nice to see a positive story''
Well done all involved and hope the little fella is well.
