At Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust we are extremely fortunate and very proud to have a highly skilled range of experts with specialist skills. Many of our consultants are delighted to offer patients the option to have private care at the Trust. At the Trust private practise is overseen by the Medical Director to ensure that private practise does not conflict with NHS commitments.

There is new data available to help people make a choice about the surgeons - Speaking about the publication of outcomes for surgeons at QA, our Medical Director at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “As a Trust we welcome this move by the NHS towards even greater transparency. - Performance data for surgeons at Queen Alexandra Hospital has been released by the NHS in a move towards greater transparency.

Using the MyNHS website, which launched yesterday, patients can search for information including mortality rates for individual specialists. NHS England has released outcomes for nearly 5,000 surgeons across the country. Click the link to find out more Surgeon Performance data
