This service allows mums-to-be to self-refer to any maternity clinic within a trust via an e-form on the Trust website.

 

The mum-to-be provides basic demographic and summary medical history about herself and then makes a selection of the particular clinic she would like to register at.

 

When complete, the form is received by the relevant maternity unit and an appointment can be made. The referral is automatically relayed to the mum-to-be’s GP so that they have full knowledge of the self-referral.

 

A GP may also use the service to refer a mum-to-be attending their practice.
