Until Professor Frank Pantridge's retirement in 1982, he was the director of Medical Cardiology in the Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast, which is the leading teaching hospital in the Province and is known throughout the medical world for the high standards of its teaching and treatment of patients: it is of course a major part of the National Health Service in Northern Ireland.
Professor Pantridge recognised that while the funds necessary to maintain a hospital of the size and complexity of the Royal Victoria Hospital must come from the public purse, much valuable additional work – particularly in the field of research – can be done if private funds are available when, for a particular project, public funds are either not available or are insufficient.
