    Miss Scott’s clinic hours are Monday to Friday 09.30 to 17.30, although occasional appointments outside these hours may be available.

    Miss Elaine Scott is an experienced Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, who was appointed to her Consultant post at the Royal Free, a well-known London teaching hospital, in 2000.

    Her interest is Obstetrics (pregnancy care including delivery), including high-risk pregnancy, having undertaken research into the causes of preterm delivery (leading to the award of her MD).

    Miss Scott chose to leave the NHS in 2017 in order to focus on her private practice, which she undertakes at the Portland Hospital. Her aim in her practice of both Obstetrics and Gynaecology is to provide high quality, individualised care for all patients. She tries to ensure that every woman, whom she cares for, has a full and clear understanding of her case, informed by evidence-based medicine. She believes that it is only by doing this, that each woman can make an informed decision about her care, in partnership with Miss Scott.

    Miss Scott understands that the most important outcomes for pregnant women are the safe delivery of a healthy baby and, of course, a healthy mother. She believes that good communication, a good rapport and informed choice are crucial, if women (and their partners) are to feel confident about their care. This is particularly important during pregnancy and delivery. In her private practice, many of her pregnant patients are normal, healthy women with uncomplicated pregnancies. Her extensive obstetric and labour ward experience enables her to identify any potential problems early, so that she can manage them safely, whilst at the same time recognising that pregnancy and delivery are natural processes, in which normality should be promoted whenever appropriate and safe. She is happy to offer pre-pregnancy advice to any women who wish or need it.

    Miss Scott also undertakes a general gynaecological practice and deals with a variety of problems including menstrual irregularities, miscarriages including recurrent miscarriage, pre-conception advice, hormonal disturbances, contraception, hormone replacement therapy and the menopause. She strongly believes in preventative healthcare and is happy to do well-women check-ups, annual health checks including cervical smears and screening for sexually transmitted disease.

    Her 360-degree feedback (anonymised feedback collected from members of the team eg nurses, fellow doctors in her specialty, GP’s, theatre staff and patients, as part of the appraisal process) shows that she is well respected by and works well with her multi-disciplinary colleagues and that her patients have been extremely happy with their care. The grades given by her colleagues have declared her to be well above both the national and the speciality average for all of the criteria about her clinical practice.

    Whilst at the Royal Free, she undertook many senior leadership roles including Labour ward lead, Clinical governance lead, Risk management lead and Obstetric department lead. In addition, she was a College Tutor and responsible for overseeing the training of the junior doctors within the department. Miss Scott instigated and oversaw the development of a new delivery suite with home-from-home facilities and a midwifery-led unit. In addition, she also set up the first specialist joint renal/obstetric clinic at the Trust, in order to better care for pregnant women with transplants and renal problems. She was awarded the Fellowship to the RCOG for her work in 2006.

    Miss Scott trained and qualified as a doctor at University College Hospital. Her specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology included working in a variety of other teachings/University hospitals, including the Chelsea and Westminster, St Marys Hospital, Queen Charlotte’s hospital in London, as well as Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge and the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Her research for her MD thesis was carried out at University College Hospital.

    At every step I felt very looked after. It was exactly what I needed to feel safe and calm during some tough moments in my pregnancy and my baby’s birth. She had my complete trust. She is thorough and exacting, kind and personable. Her passion and commitment is a constant throughout. I would recommend Ms. Scott to any and all women, everywhere. The quality of care she gives is outstanding.

    Elaine was perfect. I could not have asked for a better doctor. Very honest, thorough, and caring. I was able to have transparent and informative conversations with Elaine about all the options and possibilities surrounding my pregnancy and delivery, which I appreciated. I will continue to trust Elaine with my health. :)

    Apart from her obvious expertise in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Miss Scott has a welcoming and kind bedside manner and you are made to feel comfortable straight away. Both me, my sister, and my teenage daughter see her, and we would highly recommend her.

    I cannot recommend Elaine Scott highly enough. I had scheduled multiple Obstetrician appointments as it was advised that I should meet several, but the moment I met Miss Scott, I felt instantly that mine and the welfare of my baby were in the best possible hands and that I should look no further. My husband and I had been trying for a baby for 6 years, 4 of those with IVF. My medical notes were vast, from multiple clinics. Watching Miss Scott review these notes during our initial consultation, gleaning and understanding my medical journey within such a short time was so reassuring. I felt that I was been assessed thoroughly and as an individual not as simply a patient. I had complete confidence in her knowledge and professionalism from the outset. I had initially been under the care of the NHS but being an older first time Mum and having a precious IVF baby, for multiple reasons, at 38 weeks I decided to engage a private Obstetrician. My only regret is that I did not find Miss Scott sooner, being cared for by her earlier in my pregnancy would have been vastly beneficial. Even still, In such a short time, the level of trust and confidence my husband and I had in Miss Scott cannot be understated. Miss Scott has a fantastic approach to care, being decisive but patient and kind. She has a great sense of humour and put me at ease during some tense moments. She always took the time to consider my questions and requests, guiding me with total expertise on the best route for the safe delivery of our baby. I was particularly impressed with he postnatal care Miss Scott delivered. She came in to see me regularly after I had given birth including the day of my hospital discharge, despite it being her day off and she and her assistant still check on my welfare now. I also noticed the level of respect the midwives and other hospital care providers had for Miss Scott who is clearly a valued and highly regarded industry professional. I feel so fortunate to have found Miss Scott and would even go as far as to say I enjoyed the delivery of my baby under her supervision. She is an exceptional Obstetrician and I will be eternally grateful for help and support in the perfect delivery of our baby boy.
