Antenatal and Postnatal Checks

Did you know that you can now self-refer directly for maternity care without seeing a GP?

Shared antenatal care for women and postnatal checks, by appointment only.

Our surgery has previously hosted Midwife clinics for those women booked at Kings College Hospital only.  From early October 2015, due to re-structuring of maternity services as Kings, we are disappointed to inform patients that midwife appointments will no longer be available at Acorn Surgery.  For details of where your antenatal midwife appointments will be scheduled please contact your midwife team.

For those of our patients who choose to book their maternity care through St Thomas' Hospital or Lewisham Hospital, their midwives will make arrangements to see them at other locations.
