Simple steps to consultant-led care
Find a consultant obstetrician who has admitting privileges at The Portland Hospital by using the consultant search option. You may wish to contact several consultants to discuss your personal birth preferences, their fees, consulting room location, qualifications, gender, languages spoken or other criteria to ensure you have the most appropriate consultant for your birth.
Please remember that the consultants are independent of the hospital and we can not recommend any one consultant. You may choose a consultant through personal recommendation by family or friends or your GP may also refer you to a consultant.
Your consultant obstetrician will advise you on antenatal screening, scans etc. and make the necessary booking for the birth of your baby at The Portland Hospital. It is advisable if you have a private medical insurance policy to check the circumstances under which you may be covered for maternity care, obtaining confirmation in writing which will be later requested by the hospital admissions department.
