Additional Information

This page provides service contact information for Maternity and Early Pregnancy Services in the four Devon Acute Trusts. Information has been provided for patient accessible services and healthcare professional contact numbers for advice, guidance and potential referral.

Key Message

  • This information has been provided to minimise Emergency Department referrals for patients where ED will add little value. ED referral is for any life or limb threatening illness or injury.
  • Units have redesigned services and workloads to support social distancing as much as possible for the safety of staff and patients.
  • This information supplements information the patient may already posses through contact with community midwifery services. Please ensure the patient possesses the right contact information for any escalating health issues.
