Uncertain times lie ahead in the next few months with Covid-19. Coming out of lockdown is likely to be a long process. Social distancing, wearing a mask in public areas and working from home as much as possible, may be recommended for some months to come to keep us all as safe as possible.
I want to reassure you all that any suspected gynaecological or early pregnancy medical emergencies within office hours will still be dealt with swiftly by us at the Portland Hospital. Appropriate PPE is provided for patients and staff.
Video or telephone appointments can be arranged to discuss any routine gynaecological issues, including fertility, contraception, menopause and egg freezing. All the medical insurance companies are happy to cover the costs of relevant referrals during the crisis according to the conditions of personal policies.
Blood tests for routine issues can be arranged at our laboratory 6 days per week, and once the initial phase of lockdown is over, we can arrange 10-15 minute visits at the clinic with appropriate PPE for any examinations, scans, smear tests, IUCD insertions or other specialist investigations or procedures. Please note that discussion of any results will be by phone thereafter, to keep both you and us as safe as possible until life returns to normal.
Costs for remote consultations:
30 minutes with pre-consultation online questionnaire
|Follow up consultation|
|Quick review consultation|
Office procedures with PPE:
|Smear test with infection screen||£231|
Other procedure costs available on request.
If you live abroad or cannot travel into London we are happy for you to arrange relevant investigations locally if you can.
It is likely that the private fertility units in the UK will recommence before the NHS based units. We are happy to add you to our patient list anytime, to ensure your treatment is not delayed any longer than is necessary.
Our priority always is to look after your health as best we can and adapt our working practices to ensure ALL conditions and appropriate screening are taken care of at this difficult time.
