I had my DD there 18 months ago but have moved house since and I have heard that they have become quite strict about who gets reffered there now and I just want to know if anyone knows what documents they check?
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
After i was rejected from the Mater we tried them, but they automatically reject the fax referral from the doctor if its out of the catchment. In my case, Ipswich, i rung and spoke to them explained the circumstances, and they said the doctor had to write it clearly on the referral and then pretty much call and see if someones read it. I had a 7wk prem last pregnancy at Ipswich and didnt want to go thru that again. However i have now found a private midwife worth every dollar and she keeps Ipswich Hospital inline and makes sure I am getting the best care.
My only suggestion would be to find a doctor within the inner city and use a inner city address of a friend or relative. Can always use your correct address later in the pregnancy once you have your foot in the door, just say you recently shifted.
