Will I deliver where I choose?
Yes in the majority of cases. We intend for you to deliver in the place of your choice. In order to keep you and your baby as safe as possible, in rare cases, you may have your care at a different hospital. We will always inform you of this change.

It uses automatic number plate recognition to capture vehicle registrations on entrance and exit and checks if the appropriate tariff has been paid for the length of stay on site.
