You can’t pre-book a room on the Kensington wing if you’re giving birth in the NHS ward, but if you’ve had an NHS birth, you can ask after the birth if they have any Kensington rooms available and then pay your £1500 a night for them
But obviously the priority goes to Kensington wing patients so there is no guarantee you’ll get one.
I would question what another poster said about ‘mixing’ NHS and private care
The private consultants are happy to use your NHS notes as your notes and they don’t seem remotely confused! They all spend half their week as NHS consultants so it would be quite worrying if they didn’t know their way around your notes when they are sat in their private consulting room..!
We started off with the NHS and then switched, and it was fine. However, the popular consultants get booked up well in advance as they limit the number of patients they have at any one time, so if you aren’t in touch with them by the time you’re 12 weeks, you might find you are limited as to who will take you on as a patient.
We had Mina Saviddou and she is just wonderful. Her private consulting room is opposite the hospital, and she is an outstanding doctor.
