If you are more than six weeks pregnant you can now book your maternity care directly with Poole Hospital’s maternity servicesby filling in a self referral form.
The form asks you questions about yourself, your family and your medical background. Please answer as fully as possible, as this will enable us to ensure that you receive the most appropriate care.
Following receipt of your referral you will be contacted via email by a member of the community team and given an appointment at 8 weeks to have your routine booking blood tests performed. At this appointment the midwife will discuss your screening options with you and complete a consent form. A phlebotomist will perform the blood tests. The appointment will take approximately 20 minutes.
Once you have referred in to the service you will be contacted within 3 weeks with a date for the booking appointment. If you do not hear from us within three weeks please contact 01202 442515.
For all other queries regarding your maternity care, you should call the community midwifery team on 01202 442692 in the first instance.
