Direct Line Launched for Antenatal Appointments
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has launched a new central booking line. Telephone No 0141 232 4005 to streamline antenatal appointments.
When women make a call they will be given an appointment with a named midwife and scan slot. A request will then be made to the patient's GP with details of the two appointments asking for the information to be provided in advance of the booking appointment. As far as possible women will be offered appointments close to the GP and their local hospital to ensure improved continuity of care.
