Women will be able to directly refer themselves into Midwifery care via an online self-referral form, accessible via the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust website. This information will enable our referral co-ordinators to administrate our PAS and Maternity Information System E3 with patient demographics and will allow our midwives to access pre-booking information regarding past medical and obstetric history.
The self-referral co-ordinators will be responsible for creating the patients first booking appointment and providing all pregnancy related information electronically. The community midwives will continue to use the GP surgeries as normal.
This system will go live on Monday 27th April
