The Portland Hospital has partnered with the International Gene Clinic® to offer the most comprehensive private clinical genetics service for children in the UK.
Our highly specialised Consultant Clinical Geneticists Dr Anand Saggar and Dr Melita Irving provide information through investigations, diagnosis, and risk estimation to enable the patient and their family to make decisions on the most appropriate course of action and treatment.
Clinical genetics at The Portland is a fully integrated service and works collaboratively with the wider multidisciplinary team of consultant physicians and allied healthcare professionals to ensure that the patient and their family are fully supported.
The genetic testing is provided by HCA Laboratories who work with an international network of specialist genetic referral laboratories to ensure access to the latest scientific and technological advances. Muscle biopsies, electrophysiology and imaging with or without general anaesthetic can also be organised at The Portland.
Outpatient clinics are available at The Portland and our Children’s Outpatient Department at The Shard. We can also support patients with highly complex conditions where an inpatient setting is more appropriate.
