The London Times

“Recovery and Renewal is an essential companion… It is like a good friend who always knows what to say, at the right time. And on the rare occasion when your friend does not know the answer, he will help you ask the right questions. Never let this new friend far from your side.”

– Martin Barrow, Health Editor, The London Times
