A recent patient endorsement - Feb 2018:

Dear Dr Beattie

I wanted to email you personally to thank you and your staff for how i was cared for before during and post my hemicolectomy operation.

The care i received in ward XX was second to none, can you please pass my gratitude to all staff, from admittance to discharge, not just from me but on behalf of my family, who were also treated with so much respect.

There is a lot of negatively surrounding the NHS but I can't praise it enough, not least due to your caring and professional expertise, from the moment you stated " we've a bit of work to do on you" i knew immediately i was in safe hands. You're down to earth approach put my mind at ease, which is no mean feat for someone recently diagnosed with cancer.

Finally, should I hear of anyone suffering with a bowel condition in the future i will whole heartedly be endorsing Dr G Beattie and his team at Antrim Area Hospital

Kind regards
