Maternity & Paediatrics

We want to make it as quick and simple as possible for your patients receive maternity care at Homerton. That is why we allow patients to self-refer to us, this means that they don’t need to see you just for a referral.

Patients wishing to self-refer can complete the online self-referral form and email it to, alternatively they can call the Maternity Helpline on 0208 5810 5955 to speak with a midwife for assistance. We also welcome referrals from GPs and social workers.

For full details on our services please see the Maternity service page

Along with antenatal, labour, perinatal, and postnatal care, Homerton also runs a consultant-led Pre-Conception Clinic to support patients with long term medical conditions who are thinking of getting pregnant or are pregnant. Patients can be referred via eRS.
