Will be relocating to Milton Keynes from Essex at the end of this month, I am 13weeks pregnant tomorrow, has anyone transferred their maternity care previously from a different borough and where do I start? Had a good look online but have no clue apart from hospital facilities
As house purchase went through (around 25-30 weeks?) I rang new GP and had some post sent to new address (with homeowner's permission) so I could officially register as a new patient. I asked to see a MW straight away and at 36 weeks agreed a home birth - their limit for HB requests. From then on all my dealings were with new healthcare trust. I had my own notes of course anyway.
Good luck hope all goes smoothly for you. Definitely a stressful time!
I moved at 20 weeks. Registered at new GP. Got a midwife appointment and she booked me into local hospital. I went for one appointment there, disliked consultant and then got transferred to another hospital. I did have 3 set of notes by end. So easily come, but registering with GP is most important.
Thanks for the replies! so i need to locate a new GP first... it's so different to where i live now, they have an email/voice msg system where you leave your details once you find out you are pregnant, then the midwives call you!
I'll definitely start looking at a GP practice to register for then, due to move in 2 weeks!! stressful but exciting times
had my 12w scan but i was early (11+3) so have to go back at 15w, also told baby is small for dates so i'll have scans every 3 weeks, already had my first routine bloods + down syndrome blood test, all well so far i do have some complicated medical history and my 1st pregnancy was small for dates too, had consultants as well as mw appointments for my last so I'm really hoping i can find a good GP that will look after me!
