Hi girls Just a quick question in regards to the cost of the 20 wk anomoly scan when your going public, ive had a few people telling me different things. one was saying that cos your public you dnt pay (she's going public herself and is 34 wks pregnant) and another girl is going public too and said she had to pay 160 yoyo's for the scan. both of these were in sligo general where i will be attending aswell! Can anyone clarify this for me! I cant get an answer of the hospital dept! Typical! :o0

I did not attend Sligo General but I was a public patient and as far as i am aware everything is covered when your public regardless of what hospital you attend in the country. I had loads of scans because I had a low lying placenta and I was never asked to pay for any of them.

Thanks newmammy! I presume aswell that all hospitals are playing by the same rules aswell! Thanks!

Ciara, I am attending Sligo General as a Public Patient and have paid for nothing, we had our scan at 22 weeks. HTH. Good luck with the pregnancy. :wv
