Our maternity unit is currently much busier than usual.
If you are pregnant and think you are in labour, please call 0208 767 4654 for advice before attending St George’s Hospital (Tooting).
Due to high demand for maternity services at present, we may need to divert your care for a temporary period to a neighbouring hospital. Our teams will always ensure you get the care and treatment you need.
Janet Bradley, Director of Midwifery at the Trust, said:
“Our maternity services are exceptionally busy at the moment, which is why we are taking proactive steps to manage demand, so ensuring all women giving birth at St George’s get the care and treatment they need.
“If we do need to transfer your care to another hospital, your medical records and birth plan will transfer with you, so ensuring you receive continuity of care.”
We apologise for any inconvenience, and thank you for your cooperation.
