Non-urgent advice: Found out you’re pregnant?

North Tees and Hartlepool is an NHS service providing a single point of access for all maternity referrals in the Peterlee, Hartlepool, Stockton and surrounding areas. The aim is to make sure you have access to the right care from day one. The Trust will triage your referral based on the information you provide and the hospital will contact you to start your antenatal care. In the meantime if you are worried about your pregnancy, please tell your GP straight away.
