Self-referral service for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals ( Includes Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley and South Ribble Hospital)
As soon as you find out you are pregnant you have the option to book your maternity care directly with Lancashire teaching Hospitals instead of seeing your GP; we encourage you to do this as soon as possible so you can see your midwife and have your early screening tests.
When you submit the form our booking team will arrange your first booking appointment and also notify your GP of your pregnancy.
It is now routine practice for women to be seen on their own for the first 10 minutes of their appointment
Your booking appointment will between 9-13 weeks of pregnancy. We encourage partners or anyone else you would like to be present to attend so we can share information and involve everyone.
Before Referring to our services please note on the referral form:
1. Only select yes for the question "Would you like more information on homebirth" if you are interested in having your baby at home.
2. Choosing Chorley Birth Centre: if you wish to birth at Chorley then this is a freestanding midwifery unit staffed by midwives only.
