"Excellent care given during treatment for alcohol misuse"

About: North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust / Addiction services

(as the patient),

I was admitted to hospital due to alcohol misuse- a seizure without a doubt was coming. Friday I was told I could leave the next day, but I knew I was nowhere ready to leave. If I left I would have had to drink or have another seizure, thus ending back in hospital.

Then along came the hero of the hour (Neil) he stood his ground with head doctors telling them the situation. Without Neil I would either be dead or back to square one - drinking heavily.

This goes out to Sue and Neil.

Thank you for your excellent and continued help. People like you two and your team make all the difference.
