Temporary Relocation of Midwifery-Led Care at St Mary’s Hospital

Due to unforeseen necessary building work in the Cambridge wing outside the birth centre, Imperial College NHS Trust is temporarily unable to deliver care from the St Mary’s birth centre location.

They anticipate this to be the case until mid-November when the planned work will be completed. All other maternity services at St Mary’s Hospital remain unaffected by these works, and all women will continue to be offered a full package of midwifery-led care during these works, but from a different location. They offer their sincere apologies for the inconvenience this may cause you.

All women already booked in for care should have been contacted by phone or post. If you have not been contacted please call the maternity team on 020 3312 7707. Women attending antenatal appointments at an earlier stage of pregnancy are being informed of the birth centre location issue and are being given a choice of where they would like to receive midwifery-led care during this time.

More information is available on the maternity and obstetrics section of the Trust website.
