If you have a particular consultant in mind make early contact with The Rotunda Private as consultants become fully booked up very quickly.

We try to accommodate all private patients in a private room or a semi private room on admission, where available. However, you will need to confirm in advance with your private medical insurance provider what cover you actually have on your particular plan, as not all plans have similar coverage arrangements.

All private patients are accommodated in a private room on admission, where available*.

Important note regarding your admission to hospital as a private patient. 

Health insurance companies cover a three night stay or a five night stay for a caesarean section. If it is medically necessary for you to stay longer that should be covered, although you will need to check what accommodation is covered by your insurer.

After the birth of your baby you can add your baby to your policy immediately.
