Semi-Private Care

Welcome to The Fitzwilliam Maternity Clinic

If you choose semi-private care, you will be seen by a nominated Obstetrician and/or their team for your antenatal visits at the clinic. 

Visits will alternate with your GP under the combined care scheme and your GP will see you for your six week postnatal check-up unless you have been requested to attend the hospital.

Benefits of choosing Semi-Private Care

  • Continuity of care, flexibility of combined care
  • Seven antenatal visits with nominated consultant and/or their team
  • Familiarity of GP

Please find to follow the list of our Consultants and the days they attend the clinic:

Do try and book early if you have a particular consultant you wish to see to avoid disappointment.

Please note that all Semi-private clinics are held in the afternoons apart from Friday when the clinics take place in the morning.
