How to refer a patient with cleft lip and / or palate

New babies with cleft

  1. Please contact our clinical nurse specialists immediately after birth on: 078 6017 9418.

Please leave a voicemail if you get no answer at any time of day.

  1. Alternatively, please email details of your referral to:

Pamela.Larmour@belfasttrust.hscni.net and Emma.McCartney@belfasttrust.hscni.net

Our standard is that the clinical nurse specialists will aim to see new babies within 24 hours of referral.
A delay in referral will prevent babies being seen and assessed.

Referral of mothers diagnosed antenatally

Please contact our clinical nurse specialists immediately on 078 6017 9418.

Please leave a voicemail if you get no answer at any time of day.

We aim to contact mothers within 24 hours of their baby’s antenatal cleft diagnosis.

Other referrals
