Face to Face Consultations
Who can have a face-to-face consultation during Covid-19?
As of Monday 4th May we are able to see all patients at The Portland Hospital who have a symptom or concern or need an outpatient treatment or test.
Until then we are holding a daily clinic at The Portland Hospital to see time critical patients only, as defined below:
- early pregnancy concerns (bleeding/pain)
- early pregnancy patients with history of ectopic or miscarriage
- abnormal smears
- suspected cancer symptoms
We are advising patients who need routine annual check up or screening only to delay their appointment until after July 2020.
What should I do if I need to book an appointment?
I’m coming for an appointment is there anything I should know beforehand?
In order to keep our team and patients safe and well and comply with government advice, alongside the hospital we have introduced a number of measures in order to minimise risk during your visit. You can read more about this here.
One important point to note is that only patients are allowed to enter the hospital premises so please do not bring a partner or family members with you to your appointment except in exceptional circumstances.
What if I can’t travel to your clinic at the moment?
We are offering video consultations and telephone consultations for patients who cannot get to our clinic at this time. Please see our our page on video consultations.
Patients will always remain at the forefront of our care. Our team will do their very best to continue to provide a leading service to all our patients during these exceptional times.
