He is a constant source of inspiration for me and the rest of the team, to see someone overcoming all the issues that he is facing on a regular basis is truly amazing and we all feel very honoured to be able to try and help him on his journey to recovery.”


Peter has said of the team at Erith “Your staff are so helpful and encouraging, from reception to the gym. Including supporting me to use the lift and the stairs.  People are very quick to complain, which is why I must thank all staff for their continued kindness. It means a lot to me and I never hesitate to inform both professionals and the public of this”.
