As well as his private practice, Dr Ismail has continued to operate as a consultant at a number of leading London private hospitals.
In 1992 the President of Egypt visited the UK seeking top professionals to build a state-of-the-art hospital. Mr Ismail was invited to implement the project using the latest technology in the field of Obstetrics, Gynecology, Endoscopic Operative Surgery, Infertility and IVF. The project started in the heart of Cairo near the river Nile and was called Hawwa International Hospital. Situated in Dokki, it was close to major transport links, city landmarks and the research and diagnostic facilities of the leading private hospitals. The hospital was to be a centre of excellence for obstetrics, gynecology and infertility treatment and was opened in September 1994 by the Egyptian Prime Minister at the time, Dr. Atef Sedky. Also in attendance were the Minister for Health and Cairo’s Mayor, along with a host of the country’s leading medical and political figures. This was an unprecedented turnout in the history of such events, and has not been repeated since.

Mr Ismail was subsequently awarded the certificate of Specialist (Consultant) in Obstetrics and Gynecology from the Egyptian Medical Council. In 1994 he was appointed as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Egyptian British Hospital, Cairo, and Chairman of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Unit.
