Women with Individual Needs
The Women with Individual Needs Clinic is an antenatal care clinic for women who are pregnant and have a disability.
The Clinic works with pregnant women who have acquired brain injuries, intellectual or learning disabilities, physical disabilities or sensory impairments.
The Women with Individual Needs Clinic has a dedicated Midwife and Social Worker. The Midwife provides continuity of antenatal and postnatal care, pregnancy related information and postnatal outreach for up to six weeks after the baby’s birth.
The Social Worker assesses a woman’s psychosocial needs, provides information about service options, advocacy, practical assistance, emotional and social support, referral to community services and works with her and the midwife to develop a postnatal care plan.
A Midwife's clinic runs on a Tuesday morning 9:00am to midday.
When a doctor’s appointment is scheduled, the patient sees the doctor for her local area (by team colour) in the Outpatients Department.
The WIN midwife is available Monday and Tuesday from 9:00am - 4:30pm and on Friday from 9:00am – 3:30pm.
Please complete and fax the Fast Fax Referral form. Patients can also self-refer.
An acknowledgement letter will be sent directly to the patient and the GP will be notified. The patient will then receive a letter with the appointment details.
