Addresses & Contacts, including a list of addresses of UK Institutions where Planned Births take place.
To facilitate Intra-Uterine or Neonatal Transfers a start has been made to provide a simple list of direct line telephone numbers to all Special Care Baby Units, Labour Wards and the Hospital Switchboards in every U.K. maternity unit; together with all relevant Post Codes to allow an easy calculation of distances between hospitals using Google Maps.
RF (Updated 30 Nov 2010)
Since so many government initiatives are short term, and the addresses documented by their efforts eventually disappear, and since the official lists often classify by the name of one Trust, even when there are two or more distinct maternity units, (e.g. Heartlands and Solihull) it seemed worth providing this appendix.
There is also a problem with most databases as to whether the hospitals are sorted on such a database by their name (e.g. Princess Royal Hospital or Pembury Hospital), or by town or district or by their Postal Address which is often obscure.
The main list provided here is therefore sorted alphabetically by whatever title seems most appropriate. In most places this is the the town or city (e.g. Tunbridge Wells rather than Pembury, Birmingham rather than Heartlands) except for London where the classification is by the name of the hospital rather than the borough (e.g. Guys and Thomas’ rather than Lambeth)
Please let us know of any inaccuracies by e-mailing email@example.com. Thanks
