Direct to Midwife Access
It is important that you access midwifery services on confirmation of your pregnancy.
Appointments can be made via your GP receptionist.
You do not need to see a GP to confirm your pregnancy prior to booking in to see a midwife.
New to the area? Don’t currently have a GP? Please ring the midwives on 0161 922 6159 to arrange an appointment.
