The care we received from Kay for the birth of our second baby was incredible. She respected our wishes to have a home birth, even if our baby continued to be breech, as it had been the entire pregnancy. She allowed me to birth instinctively, completely under my own guidance, which was very important to me. Our baby was born calmly and comfortably at home just as nature intended (head down!) Kay continued to visit until our baby was one month old supporting me in anything and everything I needed. Every appointment was un-rushed, in the comfort of my own home and something I looked forward to. I highly recommend choosing Kay to care for you during your pregnancy, birth and postnatally. She really is a dream. Thank you Kay.

Can't say enough about how wonderful Virginia and Kay are. Would recommend them to anyone planning or expecting a baby. 5 star rating simply isn't enough, they need a sky full to come close.

With Virginia you have an expert; she is an oracle of knowledge and experience for pregnancy, birth and beyond. Virginia's book ‘The Baby’s Coming' is a must read for anyone interested in pregnancy and birth. She is an Independent Midwife and you can hire her to be your midwife all the way through your pregnancy and birth and afterwards for breastfeeding support and the like. I admire her so much.

Nicky from Neighbourhood midwives was an absolute star during what was quite a challenging post natal period for us. We'd not pre-arranged any support before the birth but were able to put everything in place quickly within a couple of days of arriving home (on recommendation from my sister). Nicky visited us every couple of days and also provided advice by phone and text whenever we needed it. I genuinely don't think we would have managed without Nicky's support - not only as a midwife and lactation consultant but all round lovely human! It was always a pleasure to see her and I felt completely comfortable with her being in our home during those early days. I would highly recommend the Neighbourhood Midwives! Thank you!

I cannot recommend Neighbourhood Midwives highly enough. I felt well looked after in their capable hands. I enjoyed every visit and had a wonderful birth. If you are looking for great care and a positive birth then use Neighbourhood Midwives, their knowledge and compsssion is second to none.

I can’t recommend Neighbourhood Midwives highly enough - I have had two incredible birth experiences with them and I wish every woman could go through pregnancy, birth and postpartum care with such positive support and expertise. My babies are so lucky to have had such a wonderful start in life!

An absolute fantastic service with the most absolutely wonderful midwives that completely change perspectives and experience of labour, birth and the post natal period. The care and support they offer is unmatched. If you're just considering this, I whole heartedly recommend, they are so much more than midwives.

I wanted a Harmony test, for my own peace of mind - Tami was able to come and visit me the next day, and was very friendly and professional, talking me through everything, and not minding my two children being curious as to what was going on. The results came through quickly, and Tami rang me to let me know before emailing them to me.

Angela was so helpful offering breastfeeding advise when I was at the brink of giving up. Would definitely recommend contacting these guys I would certainly use them in the future :)

I used North Surrey Midwives for my second and third births. After a fairly grim first birth in hospital (textbook cascade of interventions, ending in a ventouse delivery), it was a massive relief to have down to earth, evidence based care. In practice this meant antenatal appointments in my own home, at a time to suit me, for as long as I needed; continuity of care from 8 weeks pregnant to 6 weeks post partum (and of course throughout labour and birth); and a birth plan to suit my individual needs - I achieved two home births at approx 41 weeks, which probably would not have been possible in a hospital setting owing to my geriatric age ;) Angela and Tami are lovely, friendly, reassuring people who also happen to be highly qualified and continue to develop their professional qualifications - it was a joy to have them on board with my babies!

I gave birth to my first baby on the labour ward here in 2016, and a few days ago to my second in the birth centre. I received excellent care both times, but felt particularly lucky to have experienced the care of the birth centre team. We couldn't be more grateful to them.

The NHS system does not allow negative reviews to not lower their reting, I write here the truth of my second birth The worst experience of my life at BC. I wanted to thank: the head of the birth option of BC S. B. for listening to me, it happens, for apologizing even if it was not her fault and having directly updated my medicals after the first birth reflection on October 23rd; and A. P. , responsible for the complaints, for updating my medical records as the only competent person after the second birth reflection. I advise no one to give birth to either the BC or the Queen Charlotte labour ward. At the BC they force you to give birth without an epidural, the midwives can make you the labor sweep activated without explaining that the consequences are pains like induced labor. Also being very busy, it can happen as in my case, in which the midwife S. S., has written back my medical records because 'too busy', omitting and writing things not corresponding to the truth, then they were corrected by its managers. After my negative review on the NHS, for what they allowed me to publish, at least they apologized, the least they could do. No excuse from the midwife who wrongly wrote my medical records, shame! I trust in divine justice for those who hurt me! God sees and provides!

Awful and unprofessional service. I went in for an emergency check up in the evening and had to wait for 4 long hours while sitting on a chair with no sympathy from staff. 24 weeks pregnant and suffering from bleeding and back pain. No support whatsoever or medical aid. They took a urine sample and was asked to wait in the waiting area. I was under so much stress not knowing if baby is ok or not. They were more keen to finish off paper work and admin work in the office rather than seeing and taking care of patients. Some pregnant women were given the luxury to wait in air conditioned rooms whereas they asked me to wait on a chair in the corridors. They almost forgot about me so I had to remind them every now and then that I was waiting outside. I have also suffered from a miscarriage in the past so there was a high risk of another miscarriage but they were absolutely careless and neglected me. When I asked why I was not provided the minimum care expected as everyone else, the midwife told me there were no beds available for me. I told her you could have informed me of the long wait for me to arrange visit to another emergency service but her answer was we are not getting anywhere with the conversation... it seems that they get away with mistreating and abusing patients. There was a lady who came before me she was given a bed and I was still waiting outside... they failed to do the basics. I have discharged myself after waiting for 4 hours. They did not even ask if I need painkillers to help me cope with my back pain. I went hospital at 8:30 pm and left hospital at 12 am without seeing a doctor. I discharged myself due to the increased back pain. This made me even more anxious and upset. They told me I have 2 patients ahead of me at 11:45 ?? So they still expected me to wait for another hour waiting. I will be making a formal complaint but will never return to this hospital again. I was maltreated and left hospital physically and emotionally distressed without seeing a doctor after waiting for 4 hours. Just appalling.

Delivered my baby at this hospital in June 2018. Very poor care, cold useless staff. Lazy and do minimal work. Do not listen to your needs and just keep walking off ignoring you. Delivered my baby without any help. Was left in a room with my husband calling for help in agony for over an hour. When someone finally took notice of the pain I was in I had already delivered the head.. This is just a small insight into what they put me through. I'm traumatized. Thank god myself and baby where ok, No thanks to them. I have made a formal complaint and have been told they are investigating. I will not let this go, as I feel they actually put myself and baby in danger. Whoever else has been in this situation I advise you to make a formal complaint. They can not get away with putting people they are supposed to be caring for at risk. I would Honestly NEVER even consider returning to this hospital.

I was unfortunate enough to be referred to the Gynaecology team in that place. Waited for 2.5 hrs without being given any updates on if there's a delay and how long it is. At all time there were 4-5 nurses at the reception drinking tea and having no concerns about the waiting patients. FINALLY I was called in.....by a lady which after asking me few somehow stupid questions admitted that she cannot really answer my question due to being a JUNIOR doctor......now the shocker...she has to call in her senior! And again I start with my diagnosis, treatment options etc to be asked why I don't try other options such as medication (which I've been on and is red flagged on my file due to extremely unpleasant effect) instead of invasive operation. To sum it up....NHS sucks and I cannot wait to be privatized.

Very disappointed for having hired Odette. We spent about 4.5k for having 3 antenatal visits which were fine (my wife felt they were mainly usefull to get to know the person who is going to be at your side during labour) and a labour support which we found totally useless. In fact it was via whatsup and phone calls during most of the labour (ie, the whole preliminary phase and the first few hours of the "established" phase - to give an idea, we were given one-to-one midwife from NHS about 9hrs before Odette thought appropriate to turn up at the hospital! looking backwards, I could find 1000 better ways to spend that amount of money for my wife and child than this. Will definitely stay away from her in any future pregnancy.

As a mother of 3 and a practising Hypnobirthing practitioner. Odette helped me to achieve the home birth of my dreams for my 3rd child! I highly recommend her services. You will not find anybody as highly skilled, knowledgeable and lovely as Odette is. With also teaching courses myself in Hampstead, I wanted to find a local midwife I could recommend to my clients and Odette is the only midwife that I trust. Every single one of my clients have been extremely happy with her services, enabling them to have natural births that have also been memorable. You will not be disappointed!

Had a reassurance scan at The Birth Company after a light bleed. Managed to get an appointment that day and saw Mr Gibb - he was very thorough and explained where it had come from, which was a huge relief. All measurements taken and lots of helpful information. Even though I wasn't there for photos, managed to get a lovely video of baby sucking its thumb. I also had my early scan here and again, was very pleased and reassured. Very professional and would not hesitate to book again. Thank you!

Most of the photos and videos are a little blurred. Did not find one photo which is able to see baby's whole face. Thank you for the follow-up. There are definitely a couple of better photos in the third link. As such, you guys deserve a good rating.

I went for a wellbeing scan and had a great experience. Dr. Gibb was quite through during the scan and when the initial measurements of the baby's head were on the higher end of the scale, he took the time to consult the previous scan history and performed the measurements again which were in line with expectations. An email with link to a few pictures and videos from the scan were sent immediately as well. The appointment booking process online was straightforward and the staff were professional and courteous.

I Have been admitted to this hospital many times throughout my life. Very professional and kind staff and doctors who always take very good care of me. I highly recommend this hospital fantastic people. I cannot find any fault in the hospital at all. I have come to this hospital all my life and never had an issue. I really appreciate the support and help I have received from the hospital 👍👍❤️❤️

As a patient of the dressings clinic of the burns unit I was in continuous extreme pain.Although this was logged on a 1 to 10 scale there was no interface with any pain consultant.The nurses managed to show almost no empathy and the medical supervision seemed almost invisible.Although the trust Pals team were wholly supportive and encouraged a complaint nothing happened as a result of this.If a Pals team has little or no power it usually is very bad news for the patient.Getting hospital transport in virtually impossible although I was on crutches.Three letters to the Chief Executive eventually sorted the matter out.As a carer and carer governor (elsewhere) I have decades of experience at the hard end and this was just about the most negative experience of the NHS to date.The clinical lead was of no help and my local pain clinic immediately saw the seriousness of my situation and gave all possible help.The dressings clinic staff need empathy training and pain control issues need to be embedded within a training module. The service needs to be joined up with psychological input in place and patients need to be given access to detailed information about negative outcomes.

Extremely competent, polite and helpful, even at 3am! I showed up with a screaming pain in the neck and a fever so they thoroughly did blood test and were able to discard worst case scenarios like meningitis. At that point even with the horrible pain I was feeling embarrassed to disturb them for a neck spasm or something similar, but they told me I did the right thing coming in, gave me treatment for the symptoms, all of that in the middle of the night and with a smile. Huge sympathy for those guys working crazy hours for our health! Thank you again

My wife visited here for surgery and generally got a very good experience. When reading reviews I notice that most reviews complain about the “service” as if you are in a restaurant rather than the quality of care. In our experience this was a good hospital. We experienced knowledgeable consultants that make time to see you.

I’m not one for leaving reviews, but I feel I have to in this instance. We had our baby at this hospital after viewing most private hospitals and bought into the brand. We found out the hard way that this hospital is the total opposite of what we thought. I can’t say much more as my wife doesn’t want me to, but I will say there was major negligence from the hospital and please rethink putting your life and baby’s life in their hands.

It is a far cry from what a private hospital should be like. They forgot they are private and we paid for our newborn son to be treated there. We have filed a complaint with the management team but NO ONE bothered to respond. We got an email saying it was their mistake but it didn’t include a single apology. They think they are above the law. I find it a dangerous place where they first try to put the blame on you, for a mistake they made. Happily launched into legal action threats and bullying, even when we had a proof the mistake was on their part. When it was finished and they finally acknowledged that we were right all along, none of the people who harassed us said “sorry”. They treated us with so much incompetence and disrespect. I would never trust them with my son’s life. If you think you will be better off here than anywhere else - think twice. This is horribly run place and you will not get a good care. There are many better private hospitals in London where you will actually get outstanding care. Not here - the patient is not important to these people.

I went to the hospital to visit Dr Julie Price in February. I got charged over £700 for her talking to me 2x 8 min. She didn't touch me, she didn't examine me, she just sat behind her desk talking but saying nothing. Be very careful when you go private. My friend went to her 5 years ago and was happy with her. Paying almost £1000 and not even being examined truly hurts.
