OBGYN Matters, set up by Christian Barnick and Alison Wright, offers care for pregnant women and women with gynaecological problems. Between them they have more than 40 years experience in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. OBGYN Matters is based at The Portland Hospital in Great Portland Street, London.
Working together with The Portland Hospital we are able to offer a full range of medical and other therapies. We are able to perform all routine and a number of specialist services. Onsite access to high quality ultrasound for example means that a single visit is often all that is required for a diagnosis to be made and treatment planned.
The Portland Hospital
The Portland Hospital is the only private hospital in London entirely dedicated to women and children. Internationally renowned for clinical excellence, women from around the globe seek the expertise of the doctors here. The Portland’s specialities are primarily Obstetrics (maternity), Gynaecology (women’s health) and Paediatrics. Outpatient departments for both adults and children, imaging (X-ray, ultrasound and MRI scanning), physiotherapy and pharmacy are available, as are a full range of in-patient facilities.
Working as a team means that one of us or one of our colleagues is on hand for advice and support 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The Portland Hospital staff are often commended on their professional yet friendly approach. The Portland’s Consultant Obstetricians, Gynaecologists and Paediatricians are accompanied by resident (and therefore onsite 24 hours) Consultant Anaesthetists, Resident Medical Officers (RMO’s), experienced nursing staff and a team of midwives dedicated to your care during delivery. The Portland ensure a high ratio of nursing staff per patient with an average of three to four women to one nurse/midwife. This ratio is increased to one to one care in critical areas such as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and delivery suite.
Patient safety is our main concern. The Portland Hospital has specialists and facilities on hand should an emergency arise, including a dedicated emergency obstetric theatre, NICU, a Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and an adult High Dependency Unit (HDU). All our staff have training in emergency procedures and all clinical staff have been trained in basic life support skills. Many also have skills in intermediate and advanced life support, paediatric advanced life support and newborn life support.
