"Throughout my SpR training I have felt your unfailing support. You have always gone the extra mile for me and I owe so much to you. I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you and will always be impressed by you as a doctor and a person."


"Christmas is a good time to let you know how thankful I am to you for all you have done for me. Not a day goes by without me being aware how lucky I have been to be under your care."


"A little something for a very kind and reassuring expert who made my day. I thank you for your diligence, your expertise, your time and effort and for your understanding – a gift that not all doctors have."


"Thank you so much for everything you and your team have done for me over the past 12 months. I feel that I have received the best possible care in what has been the worst period in my life. I don't know what the future holds but I remain positive, thanks to you."


"Today is the 11th anniversary of my transplant and I'm feeling as well as ever. I wanted to thank you again for everything you have done for me. To see my children grow in to adults and flourish has been an amazing blessing."


"Lindy and I will never forget what you did for us in 2003. So 10 years on, I can write this card."


"Just a big thank you for getting me through the last 5 years. Looking forward to the next..... years."


"We would like to thank you for your amazing care over the years, which gave Steve by God's grace, another 16 years with his family. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your dedication and help."


"Thank you so very much for all that you have done for me over the past seven months. You have made what could have been a very difficult time into a situation which I have gained so much from."


"Very few colleagues in the region will realise just how dire haematology had become at UHB until you arrived and worked to rebuild and set the foundation for a great service. "


"I must thank you most sincerely for all the care that I have received from you and your team over the years. I had no illusions, and knew that there was no way my medical condition could be cured, but there was never a moment when I felt that I was getting anything less than the very best possible attention and treatment. There is something else I must say. I have always greatly appreciated the way that you have told it like it is, spelling out to me the facts about my condition. I greatly dislike it when doctors try to wrap up unpleasant truths in a lot of flannel; I much prefer straight talking, and that has been your style from the start."


"I am not sure where I begin to thank you for all you have done to help me get better. I have been so impressed by your professionalism and clarity and yet kindness and joy. You have been a huge inspiration to me on what has been the most incredible journey. Ward 625 and clinic are very impressive, all your staff thorough, kind and excellent, some how you have impressed me the most. Thank you Prem from all my family."


"I just wanted to write and say thanks for the treatment you gave me 10 years ago. You probably don't remember me, you treat so many patients. I can't believe it has been that long since I was diagnosed with NHL, then had all that treatment over the next 9 months before coming to the old East 3A ward to have my stem cell transplant. I went to Las Vegas to get married 2 months after the transplant, it was the happiest day of my life. I will always be grateful and humbled for the way I was treated during the time I was ill. Please understand how much the people who looked after me, mean to me. I think about it all the time. Thank you again."


"I am writing to express my deep gratitude for your superior care while I was undergoing treatment. I especially appreciated the straight-forward in which you communicated the severity of my condition. It's never easy to hear what you had to tell me and the need for medication, you handled the situation with care and grace and your patience has not gone unnoticed. My recently improved health is a credit to your expertise and attentiveness. I will be certain to continue to recommend you to everyone I know."


"Just a few words to say thank you for your care. I don't think I will ever find such a caring and passionate doctor like you. "


"Thank you for looking after my Mum over the past 6 years. The care and time and effort you have given her at every step of the way has been fantastic. Thank you for managing Mum's case so well and allowing us to still have our lovely Mum with us today. I can't show our appreciation enough."


"As AS's Mum and Dad we are writing to thank you for the treatment you have given him. The words "thank you" somehow don't seem enough to express how grateful and thankful we are and always will be to you for giving him back his life."


"I came to you frightened full of despair and fearing the worst. Your positive outlook and encouragement gave me the strength to cope through what seemed the darkest time of my life. It is so hard to put in to words how thankful I am to you and your wonderful team over these past months"


"Prem, just a few words to say thank you for your care and expert treatment. We have both worked with 100's of doctors and you have qualities we have rarely seen. It truly makes a difference when the chips appear down"


"We know that at all times, Dad had complete confidence in your abilities and liked you enormously and we are certain that this made a significant positive contribution to his ability to deal with the disease and the rigorous treatment that he received. You have always been exceptionally generous with your time and we are conscious that on numerous occasions that we have looked to you for answers which were almost impossible to give, Thank you for explaining the developments so clearly and for your patience, kindness and candour. We do of course realise that you could not have done this without your team both in Oncology and Dudley Suite and we will be writing to them separately to express our warmest thanks"


"I also wanted to say how blessed we were to have you Prem looking after us. Thank you again for all you did for Annie. I will never forget how completely you supported and cared for her"


"I am so pleased that I had you. You were very inspirational and always very honest, which is exactly what I needed. Thank you so much for everything, and I will never forget you"


"One thing for sure is that I don't think I will ever find such a caring and passionate doctor like you are. You often asked me how I got through my illness. You played a big part in this section of my life; your drive and positivity that you gave me during my illness. From that first meeting that we had I knew that deep down that I was going to be absolutely fine in your care"


"I wanted to personally write and thank you for the care that your were able to give my late Mother during the seven weeks she lived after having been diagnosed with a high-grade Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 89. It was in the Oncology centre at The Priory Hospital that you first had the unpleasant task of telling my Mother and I of your diagnosis. The way it was handed and the first and only palliative chemotherapy treatment that she received was all exemplary and very kind. Later in the Dudlet Suite you placed us under no pressure to find alternative care for my Mother, but continued to look after her, with the suite staff in a friendly and sympathetic way. My sister and I are unlikely to meet a consultant offering so much time to her patient again, and so quietly and patiently listening to her. My Mother was privileged to have you looking after her and she knew she was privileged. We hope your career will continue strength to strength and we wish you well in the future"


"Prem, I know that Sarah had a real fondness for you and the way you treated and respected her as a person rather than an illness"


"It is now just 9 years since we first met and as you know I was very impressed and had 100% confidence in you from that meeting. That confidence has remained solid all through the 9 years. I have had excellent treatment at all times. You have this ability to choose a very good team and to inspire everyone."


"Thank you for saving my life. I cannot believe the difference the treatment you gave, made. May God continue to bless you".


"I am writing to thank you and your team for the care you gave Graham over the past few months. He could not have asked for more. You Prem were an inspiration to us both and a few minutes with you gave us the hope and spirit to get on with life. I feel honoured to have met you."


"The words 'thank you' are not meaningful enough for how grateful I and my family are to you, but thank you for giving me back my life and hope"


"Thank you for your love and care when I needed someone like you. Thank you, you are special"


"What good fortune it was for me to fall in to your hands together with the kindness and skills of your nurses on the Oncology Dept at the Priory"


"After what seemed like an array of flippant GPs who never really seemed to take our concerns seriously a consultant who had convinced himself that Jonathan was being overly concerned, but tried to convince us also. You were truly a light for us at the end of a dark tunnel. Thank you for your professionalism and honesty. Through out this we felt that we knew exactly where we stood with you and that felt very reassuring. This has certainly been a challenge for us, but we have always felt that we had a good prognosis, a supportive family and employer and a good doctor"


"We often speak of you, always with fondness and everlasting gratitude. We're so grateful to have known you"


"I wished to write and thank you for your sympathetic care of Christine toward and at the end of her life. You allowed her to feel in control and respected her wishes and that was much appreciated. I will always be grateful for your gentleness and kind support".


"The treatment and care you gave and showed to Peter was wonderful. He was greatly encouraged to fight the illness. My family and I would like to thank you ALL for your knowledge and understanding. We know he received the very best medical care and attention. I have happy memories of our visits to the Priory and meeting so many dedicated, wonderful people who certainly helped me in many ways as well as Peter."


"Victor, throughout the three years of his illness felt very privileged to have you as his Consultant and trusted you and respected you totally. I know that his life was considerably prolonged by your careful monitoring and expertise and I shall always be grateful for the care and attention he unfailingly received from you and all the staff at the Oncology Centre"
