as far as I know, they're only free if you're doing combined care. If you're going private or public, any visit to your GP is charged.

Yes, if you're doing combined care, gp visits are free. What combined care means is that basically, you will see the hospital for one visit, and the gp for the next (every second visit). If you are exclusively seeing a consultant / midwife at the hospital, then you don't get free gp visits. If you're doing combined care, your gp will usually fill out the form for you, and ask you to sign it (although I know of some people who have been given the form to fill out themselves). If you're not sure about it, ask your gp about getting the form filled out. HTH
