Does going semi-private mean you have to get a consultant....
No semi private means when you go for your hospital appointments you will see whichever consultant is on that day. So you do not have to book a specific consultant yourself.
I'm semi private in the Rotunda and I've never seen the same consultant twice. Every time I've been there I've seen a different consultant.
So i don't have to fork out 3 or 4 grand so unless i specifically say I want such and such a consultant.
It depends on the hospital, I'm semi-private in Holles Street & I got to pick a consultant & I will see him on every visit! Costing us 260euro!
I'm the same kittysue - with Holles Street and you get to pick your Consultant and see him every visit. He most likely won't be there at the birth though - unless he's on call that day he may peek his head around the door - and run straight back out probably
sherbetlemon........was actually thinking of going with
Mullingar.........would like to go semi-private but don't think I'll bother
with a consultant.
Well with Holles Street you have to choose a consultant with semi-private.
Don't think you've a choice as far as I'm aware.
I'd say every hospital has a different policy with regards to this. I'm sure Mullingar will tell you if you give them a buzz or check their website.
Best of luck
Thanks....yea I might give them a buzz and suss them out.
I'm with quinn essential plus ...but I'm only covered if babs is born after 1st of March and my EDD is the 4th of March ....so we'll see what happens.
