I’d like to say thank you for being an excellent service. I had a response within a day and talked to a really helpful GP to put all the current struggles in context less than 2 working days after I’d submitted a form. The doctor I spoke to was incredibly kind and such a good listener and perhaps not being much of a user of the NHS I had not realised what a massive impact a person really acknowledging a struggle and validating your emotions can have. I really appreciate the service you offer, especially  during Covid 19 mayhem this is incredible. April 2020

Dr Zaid Al-Najjar and PH Service 

It’s been 52 weeks since I landed on the doorstep of PHP and I wanted to express my gratitude to you and the service today.

I was in the darkest place this time a year ago, 13 months ago I thought that I had no option but to live out the rest of my days on tramadol. Addiction crept up on me and placed me in the darkest and most isolated place. I was no longer able to feel real emotions and was confused as to why I needed a drug to function but so scared to face living without a drug. Deep down I knew I was an addict but I would never have had the courage to admit it openly. 

I was so sad that I couldn’t enjoy my children as other mothers appeared to be and wondered why I needed a drug to give me the energy to keep up with them. I thought that if I took on a full time job that could pay me well at least I’d be able to monetarily provide for my children and give them a good nanny in place of me as I knew there was something dead inside of me. 

PHP gave me the greatest gift of being able to feel and be real again. Sorry I know this sounds cliche and corny but it has truly been my story. 

After going to many meetings I have learnt to accept the reality that it is easily possible to fall into the trap of addiction again (whatever substance it maybe). I live in constant fear of this, or have a much greater fear that my children could ever fall into it in years to come. I will just have to take one day at a time.

But today I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you Zaid. Right from the get go you treated me in a calm and sensitive way, you gave me a fair chance without judgement, you were always approachable but yet incredibly professional. 

Thank you thank you thank you Zaid and to all at PHP!
