Clinics & Services
You do not need to see a GP for referral to the midwife if you are pregnant. The midwives at the hospital have set up a route for self-referral, which in turn allows the local midwives to arrange your care.
You should register your pregnancy with Peterborough & Stamford Hospital:
1) You should access Peterborough City Hospital website: www.peterboroughandstamford.nhs.uk
2) On the tool bar across the top of the page select 'Wards and Departments'
3) This will open the page where you will should select 'Maternity Department'.
Within that section is the Maternity Self-Referral form. This form MUST be completed and submitted in order for your notes to be released from the hospital system to the midwife. The form must be submitted so that your booking appointment with the midwife can take place.
The midwives are based at Bourne Health Clinic. If you become pregnant you will be given a booking appointment at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. The first appointment may take up to one and a half hours to complete. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy.
Clinics are held at Bourne Health Clinic, St Gilberts Road, Bourne, PE10 9XA. Tel: 01778 394185
