Early pregnancy assessment units
The early pregnancy assessment units at our hospitals are for patients in the early stages of pregnancy (up to 20 weeks). If you have concerns, such as bleeding vaginally, you may refer yourself to the service, or be referred by your GP, a midwife or from our A&E departments. Please make an appointment before attending the unit (details of how to do so are below).
You may be seen in the unit if you have:
- Vaginal bleeding or pain under 20 weeks pregnant
