“You are welcome here”
Published 1st November 2019
To celebrate the clinic launch, our supporters have sent over 130 messages to show their solidarity with our patients.
For many, the winter months and Christmas are a period of longing for their loved ones, when isolation and loneliness feels the strongest. These heart-warming words of peace, welcome, and support can make patients feel less alone in this difficult time.
Thank you for all those who sent in their messages. If you’d like to share yours, you can send it through this link.
Here are some of the messages we received:
“I am so pleased that you are able to access health care. I am proud to be part of the human race when we are at our best. Wishing you good health and general wellness” – Angela
“Welcome! You are special. I am amazed at the courage and perseverance that has brought you so far – and am so sorry for any bad experiences you have had. Please be strong. I hope you will soon find a place of safety, fulfillment and joy. God bless you” -Elisabeth
“Dear Patients, You are all welcome in this country and entitled to free health care. I applaud the actions of all medical and supporting staff who have set up this clinic. A retired GP” – Anne
“Hello, I’m pleased that you are now getting treatment at the new clinic but very sorry that you did not get this on the NHS. I think everyone should be treated according to need, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from. I hope you get better soon” – Judy (former NHS worker)
“I truly hope you get what treatment you need, being ill is bad enough without having to worry about paying for it. My daughter passed away in June this year, she had been ill for many years I don’t know what we would have done without our NHS” – Christina
“Just a short message to say that I, like many others, are thinking of you all. I wish you and your loved ones all the very best” – Filomena
“I hope you get the healthcare you deserve” – Sara
“Please believe that there are many people in this country who think you should be provided with care and support whenever you need it. I always thought our country was open, tolerant and responsive to people who need our help – no matter who they are or where they are from. I am sad that the Government is failing in its duty of care. I hope you get the help and support you need” – Jane
