Informed financial consent

This refers to your right to receive information, in advance, about out of pocket fees associated with your medical treatment. We will provide our best possible estimate of your expenses for obstetric care, but bear in mind that pathology (blood and urine tests), radiology (ultrasound scans and the like) and anaesthetists (required for surgical procedures and epidurals) all have separate charges and are not covered by our quote. At your first visit, you will be asked to sign to indicate your acceptance of these terms.

Except in the event of an emergency, we will give you an up-front estimation of costs, prior to engaging one of our colleagues on your behalf.
