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.

This is a lovely hospital. All the staff are polite and it's very welcoming from the moment you step inside.

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.

The Portland Hospital for Women & Children Maternity Care Brochure


OVERVIEW
Having a baby is both exciting and daunting. As the only fully private maternity hospital in the UK, The Portland Hospital aims to help all expectant mothers to have an enjoyable pregnancy and memorable birthing experience.

Its reputation is for high-quality, patient-centred care, in safe, clean and comfortable surroundings.

The Portland Hospital’s team of over 300 experienced healthcare professionals and 70 consultant obstetricians, deliver more than 1,600 babies a year.

Both Consultant-led and Midwife-led maternity care is available and the hospital’s ethos is to put women at the centre of their own maternity care and empower them to make decisions about how they want to give birth.

Each mother-to-be has a named consultant obstetrician who, along with a team of midwives, is on hand 24-hours a day to provide medical care, reassurance and answer questions about pregnancy and childbirth.

Women are guaranteed one-to-one care during labour and a consultant anaesthetist is based on the labour ward 24 hours a day to administer pain relief. 

The hospital’s private en-suite rooms are designed to feel as close to home as possible and allow for partners to stay overnight.

State-of-the-art scanning equipment means prospective parents are able to see their babies in 3D before they are born, and the hospital also offers educational classes to prepare parents-to-be for childbirth and exercise classes to help maintain general fitness. After the birth, lactation consultants can offer practical breastfeeding advice and there is a nursery to help care for newborns so parents can rest.

The Portland Hospital has three operating theatres, one emergency operating theatre on the labour ward reserved for emergency caesarean sections, and a fully-equipped Adult High Dependency Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Special Care Baby Unit all onsite should extra medical care be required. Transitional care is provided on the postnatal ward to ensure that, as far as possible, babies remain with their mother.
