Early Pregnancy Unit
This is a department separate from the Admission Assessment Unit. It focuses on issues specific to the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Early pregnancy can be a worrying time and we want to provide the best care for you. Assessment at this clinic may involve an internal ultrasound scan and blood sampling. You can be accompanied by a maximum of two people, but we cannot allow children.
The Early Pregnancy Unit is staffed by trained midwives and a consultant obstetrician is available if required.
It is open from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and you need an appointment.
If your condition changes before your appointment, please attend the Admission Assessment Unit.
