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.

Elaine Scott showed me genuine care, comparison and displayed unwavering professionalism and competence as a world-class specialist in women’s healthcare. After my experience with Dr. Scott I have been left with a deep trust and respect for this incredible woman. After having an ectopic pregnancy misdiagnosed three times in my country of residence in the Middle East, I was on a break in London away from my family and booked in to see Dr. Scott for a check-up and confirmation that I did in fact have a miscarriage. From the moment I met her she was deeply empathetic, personal and caring by nature. She was extensive and thorough in her assessment of me, double-checking her initial scan with a specialist, and talked me through providing a detailed history of my medical background. When she explained to me that my misdiagnosed miscarriage was actually an ectopic pregnancy and that I needed emergency surgery for risk of fatal haemorrhage, she held me by the arms, gave me clear and exact instructions on what needed to happen next, and she took charge. She coordinated the surgery, an anaesthetist, a laparoscopic surgeon, accommodation, the hospital and transport on the phone right then with me in the office as a grappled with the news. Elaine Scott is an exceptional person and outstanding medical professional. I owe her my life. She has completely changed my expectations of what health care can and should be.

Ms Scott was very considerate at all times, she took time explaining everything during the appointment. She called me back to discuss the results of my blood tests and to give me some advise on how to improve two parameters that were not optimum. I recommend her services to all my friends.

I can highly recommend Miss Scott. She is very empathetic, listens to what one says and goes out of her way to ensure that following diagnosis one gets the best support possible. She is very good at explaining her diagnosis and the treatment and also what treatments are available. She is an excellent Doctor who I feel very lucky to have found and to also know that I can go back to her for any future issues. I have recommended her to many friends.
