Our maternity assessment unit (MAU) sees anyone with urgent pregnancy issues as well as providing some ongoing planned monitoring and scans. The purpose of our MAU is to provide a triage service for pregnancy-related concerns after 14 completed weeks of pregnancy.
Should you need to call us for advice, a qualified midwife will triage all pregnancy-related calls.
A detailed history will be taken over the phone and any enquiries directed appropriately.
The midwifery-led MAU team provide individualised care and if you are invited into MAU, please be aware that we operate on a priority-based triage system.
We will always endeavor to see you promptly however, sometimes you may have longer waiting times.
