Professor Ailsa Hart, Consultant Gastroenterologist at The Physicians' Clinic, was recognised in an article in the Daily Mail on Friday 8th June 2018 as being one of a group of "doctors who go to the ends of the earth for their patients". She is recognised as one of the "best IBD experts" by her peers in a poll.
In particular, it is commented that Professor Hart (the only woman recognised of 10 UK gastroenterologists) is "an outstanding physician who is warm and very passionate about her work in IBD. She has such depth of knowledge and is right at the forefront in developing new treatments as a leading researcher" says one of her peers. "She is Director of St Mark's Hospital Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research and has a particular interest in the microbes that live in the gut and play a key role in nutrition and immunity," according to another peer. "Patients love her."
