    Mr Chilcott delivered my first child at the Portland Hospital. Whilst not overseeing my antenatal care, Mr Chilcott was the consultant overseeing my delivery and undertook an emergency c-section to ensure the safe delivery of my daughter. He explained what was going on, why a caesarean became necessary and undertook the procedure professionally, ensuring I had the best possible recovery. Highly recommended.

    Mr Chilcott is an excellent consultant. I could not ask for better care. I developed complications during my induced delivery and, despite fears, felt in safe hands. His calm attitude and the ability to explain and act quickly made my otherwise difficult labour an amazing experience that I will cherish forever. Furthermore, I thank him for a speedy recovery. I would definitely choose him again for baby number two.

    In a word: majestic! We were under the care of Mr Chilcott from Week 12 until c-section birth, which Mr Chilcott conducted masterfully in January 2022. Everything he advised, everything he envisaged, tracked accordingly. His professional and calming demeanour provided continued levels of assurance, whilst the utmost respect he clearly receives from his peer group speaks tremendous volumes. We recommend Mr Chilcott unreservedly. With thanks to his expertise, we have started a new chapter of our lives. Thank you for everything! Mr & Mrs M
