During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Maternity Services

Our maternity services look after 6000 pregnant women who live in Portsmouth and Hampshire.

Once you are pregnant and this has been confirmed by a positive pregnancy test, you can self refer to our service for care. Please complete the maternity self referral form. You do not have to see your GP first.

We will aim to contact you to complete your booking with us for when you are approximately 9 weeks pregnant.

Useful telephone numbers:

Midwifery advice is available for you between 8am and 8pm at Portsmouth and Blake Maternity Centres and at the Grange Maternity Centre and the North Midwives office from 8.30am to 4.30pm. Please note that you may speak to a maternity support worker and not a Midwife when you call.

Consultants

We have a team of 12 consultants who care for women who need extra support in their pregnancy.

They offer a range of skills and expertise to enable you to have a safe and healthy pregnancy.

They are mainly based at Queen Alexandra Hospital, however they also have clinic settings at Portsmouth Maternity Centre, Fareham Community Hospital and Blake in Gosport

If your pregnancy has certain high risk factors you will be referred to our team by your midwife. Your care will then be shared between ourselves and your midwife.
