Changing address - postnatal care

Hi,

So I've been registered at the same GP since I was a child under my parents address.

I don't live in that area anymore but have been having all my midwife appointments etc there. I didn't want to change addresses and register to a new GP as I really like the midwives and also the health visitor is FANTASTIC.

I don't know what to do when the baby comes as obviously there'll be community midwives and health visitor visits but I need them to come to my house and not my parents house?! Do I give the hospital my new address or do I actually have to unregister from my GP if I do that?

@Harley8888 give the hospital your new address and they will give this to the local team in your area. No need to change GP address

Or just say your staying elsewhere for a few days when you give birth
