Dr Khasriya holds admitting rights to The Portland Hospital.

Patients who are not UK based must have the co-operation of a clinician in their home country who can oversee their care, provide prescriptions, organise regular blood tests and correspond with the clinic.  As much as possible it is preferred that overseas patients are seen face to face at the clinic as well as for urine analysis unless they are able to find a laboratory in their home country that can provide a fresh urine analysis.  If needed, the clinic will share with that laboratory the relevant technique.

Please note that private medical insurance is not accepted for the UTI clinics and patients must self-fund their treatment.  However if gynaecological investigations, procedures and treatments are required or patients are seen by Dr Khasriya for general gynaecological issues, these can be organised through the Portland Hospital who are recognised by insurance providers.
