Information for referrers

  • We welcome referrals from any professionals for women with a Hertfordshire GP with moderate to severe mental health conditions who are currently pregnant or have a child under 18 months.

  • We also accept referrals for women who are currently well and have a history of, or a current, serious mental condition eg. Bipolar Disorder, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia, Post-Partum Psychosis or other Psychotic illness.

  • Referrals are also accepted for women with a moderate - severe mental health condition who are planning a pregnancy and would benefit from pre-conception counselling.

  • If substance misuse is the primary problem, please refer to specialist substance misuse services. We can work jointly with substance misuse services if the woman also has a moderate to severe mental illness.

  • Women under 18 years old can be referred to Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and the perinatal mental health service will work jointly with CAMHS.

  • Routine referrals are screened by a multi-disciplinary team twice weekly. Urgent referrals should be discussed with the duty worker.

  • A duty worker is available Monday-Friday 9-5 to discuss urgent referrals and other queries on 0300 124 0939
