    Private hospitals in the NT - and finding a doctor

    Hi, looking for a good hospital in the New Territories to deliver in. Anybody have any experiences? I was thinking of the Baptist, but because that is the only hospital I know.

    Also, not sure how to go about finding a doctor. The only doctors I know / have seen recommended are HK island based. Would they deliver in the New Territories? How do I find doctors that do - call the respective hospital or is there a way I can find out online? Anyone know?

    I have heard good things about Dr Yu Kai-man (one friend delivered with him, another saw him for antenatal and delivered public) who delivers at Union Hospital in Sha Tin but also sees patients at the Tseung Kwan O polyclinic at Po Lam. If you google Union Hospital polyclinic you should be able to get the details.

    Thanks Charade. I have heard that Union is good - my GP recommended it recently. Will have a lok at Dr Yu Kai-man.

    I've been told Union is A LOT nicer (but more expensive) than the Baptist Hospital.

    By the way, if you end up going with Baptist, I would recommend Dr Jimmy Mak. I saw him for antenatal care though ended up delivering public (so I can't vouch for his actual skills at the delivery).

    I have to have a c-section (medical reason) so need someone who is good at sewing! ; )
