If you wish to attend a Semi-Private Clinic

Maternity care in a semi-private clinic

Semi-private care is a fee based option. Most women who choose semi-private care use private health insurance to cover as much of the cost as possible. Please look at the Hospital Charges and Private Health Insurance sections of the website for more information about charges.

If you opt to be treated in a semi-private clinic, once we receive your registration form, you will be contacted and given your first appointment - usually within five working days. As the semi-private clinics become booked up very quickly, we strongly advise you to send your completed form back as soon as possible.

Your care during the antenatal stage will be led by a consultant obstetrician or specialist registrar. Whilst we make every effort, you may not see the same doctor at each visit. In most cases, your care will be shared between the hospital doctors and your GP. When the time comes for you to deliver your baby, the labour ward midwives will care for you, with additional care from the medical team if necessary.

Following birth, semi-private mothers recover in the semi-private ward, unless they have to be accommodated in another ward until a semi-private bed becomes available.

Gynaecology care

The hospital does not treat gynaecology patients on a semi-private basis. Gynaecology patients must choose to be treated either as a public or as a private patient.
