Confirmation of your booking
After your initial antenatal appointment, if you choose to book under Dr Bakalis’ care, you will need to pay a deposit of 50% of the agreed fee. The deposit needs to be paid within seven days of invoice date. Outstanding balances are due by the 36th week of your pregnancy.
For private health insured patients
Dr Bakalis accepts women who have private insurance. It is recommended that you check, and obtain in writing, that your policy fully covers both our fees and the hospital fees. Please contact your insurance company in the first instance to obtain a pre-authorisation code for antenatal visits and delivery. Please advise us of this code together with your insurance company contact details and policy number.
Contact and Enquiries
For any further information or to book a private consultation with Dr Bakalis please contact his secretary Maria.
NHS commitments and Holidays
To comply with best practice, all private obstetricians arrange cross-cover to ensure that you have continuity of care. Dr Bakalis has arrangements with experienced colleagues who would offer you care in the following situations:
- Dr Bakalis’ NHS & hospital emergency commitments
- The unlikely event that two of Dr Bakalis’ women are giving birth simultaneously
- Medical emergencies
- Sickness or contagious illness
- Bereavement or compassionate leave
- Unplanned or last-minute family commitments
- Dr Bakalis’ holidays
When you book, Dr Bakalis will advise you if he is likely to be away around your due date. If that is the case, it is completely understandable if you then opt to book under a different obstetrician for your care. However, you may decide to continue your antenatal care with Dr Bakalis, aware that your delivery would be attended by a cross-covering consultant.
Please note, in the unlikely event that Dr Bakalis is, for whatever reason, unable to attend your baby’s birth, under the terms of your obstetric care contract, all fees – whether paid or outstanding, will still apply and remain your liability.
