How to refer - maternity services 

  • Important information about referrals

    As of 2nd January 2019, any referrals for antenatal care for a pregnancy with an expected due to date between 18th March 2019 and 30th April 2019, will not be accepted unless you live in our catchment area.

    On 31 March 2019 we are implementing a new system at UCLH that will bring together all the information about your care into a single electronic health record. This means that anyone in your care team will have access to the latest information in one place. At the moment, information is available in your paper patient notes and a number of systems around our hospitals. Having all the latest information available electronically in one place means we can further improve care, communication and your experience. To ensure our maternity services can continue to run smoothly during this time of significant change, we are making some adjustments to manage demand.

    Please note that our specialist fetal medicine unit referrals will be not be affected during this period.
