Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services project at a private maternity hospital in the City of Westminster, London.

The Portland was conceived by Barry Lewis, a paediatrician, who perceived a need for London to have a private hospital for women and children: it opened in 1983. It markets its services on an international basis and in 2015 about 25% of its earnings came from overseas patients.

In 2015, the hospital secured planning approval for a new link bridge which would enable it to expand its specialist children’s hospital within an adjacent building.

It was described as a ‘5-star hotel for some very sick patients’ at an employment tribunal in 2022.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd have completed a test and inspection of the lightning protection system in place at the hospital. This is required by the Electricity at Work Act 1989 and PTSG’s work ensures compliance with this and with British Standard EN 62305.

If repairs or maintenance are required as a result of the test and inspection, PTSG’s engineers are able to carry these out after presenting the client with an estimate.
