VISIT SCHEDULE

"You are welcome to have additional appointments and your partner and family is welcome to join in.

 

Obstetrics is unpredictable in nature and although every effort is made to run to schedule, sometimes there are delays and unavailability, for which every effort will be made to contact and not inconvenience you. I understand time is important for everybody and every appointment needs planning .Your patience and understanding is highly appreciated and if there is a delay for you to attend to late running, please call and inform as early as you can.
