Had a routine post-surgery follow-up meeting with Dr Birtle yesterday, and she was as professional, engaged, courteous and informative as any I have had with her over the past 6 years. She puts patients at ease, explains things very clearly, is efficient but not rushed. I would recommend her without reservation.
Dr Birtle is a wonderful Lady and an exceptional Doctor. Treats patients like friends and takes time to explain treatment and options. A wonderful bedside manner, and she goes that extra mile to ensure you get the treatment you need. Nothing is too much trouble. Her care fills you with confidence and is a great boost to moral. Many many thanks for the kindness and care you have given me over the years. P.S. The Nurses at Preston and your secretary are also brilliant.
The care I got was , as always warm and friendly. I always come away feeling I have had the best care possible.
From the moment we met Dr Birtles I knew my Dad was in the best and safest hands possible. Dr Birtles, along with her Team, has made all our visits more bearable. Each time we have met, I am struck by the way she interacts with her patients and family members, putting them at ease, showing great kindness and empathy, listening to any concerns and clarifying any questions with great sensitivity and tremendous professionalism. I cannot praise her highly enough and am so, so grateful for her care and support. I feel extremely lucky to have her looking after us and will never be able to thank her enough for helping us negotiate this, most difficult and extremely challenging, unwanted ‘journey’.

I am a patient of Dr Birtle and cannot recommend her highly enough. She is very supportive and reassuring at the times when it matters most. I feel safe in her hands. Her open, friendly manner during consultations and follow up meetings is a breath of fresh air. As well as her commitment to her day job she is a great supporter of cancer research and innovation and of the work of local cancer charities the latter of which she supports with a great singing voice at local fund raising events.
