Self-referral For Local Services
Most referrals to other specialists will require you seeing or speaking with a GP, however there are a number of services locally, listed below that you are able to make self-referrals to.
You can self refer yourself directly to the antenatal clinics at without seeing a GP or nurse. When they receive your referral, they will arrange an appointment with a midwife to plan your maternity care including scans and screening tests as required. At this first ‘booking’ meeting, they will discuss all aspects of your pregnancy and childbirth and offer you a choice of the antenatal care and screening that suits you. Plans for your birth will be recorded in your notes and you can update this as you like throughout your pregnancy.
