"I would like to say a big thank you. We appreciate all you've done for us. Our little Henry, who is named after you, was born on 11-2-16. Without your help we don't know if Henry would be here today."
"It goes without saying that your surgical skills, patience and bedside manner are outstanding. Thank you for taking such good care of me and for putting up with all my questions! I appreciate all your help and advice and have told my family and friends how wonderful you are."
"Mr Annan was the third consultant I saw and based on my experience I would not hesitate to highly recommend him to anyone. Mr Annan reassured me the most but he was also very realistic about my prospects. Mr Annan had performed the most myomectomies (over 600) out of the three surgeons I saw and none of his myomectomies had turned into a hysterectomy."
"Thank you so very much for your professionalism, kindness and humour in helping us achieve our goal. Although I am aware that this is your job, your kindness and positivity often kept us going when we lost our confidence. Thank you again."
"Just a short note to say a big thank you for all your help and support in the past year."
"Your happy attitude was reassuring throughout and I thank you for making the whole experience a worry-free, positive one."
"You did an emergency hysterectomy on me in the middle of the night! You were awesome and I mean awesome. You looked after me so well and I couldn't haae wished for a better surgeon."

"Many thanks for your kindness and attention during the recent MRCOG exams. I shall for ever regard myomectomy as the commonest gynae operation in the UK and quote your extensive experience and expertise in this field."

"It was a pleasure organising your retirement bash. As you had such an illustrious career and contributed so much to Whipps and to training as a whole I felt, as did others, that you should be honoured by such an event."
