SHIP Maternity Referral is an NHS service providing a single point of access for all maternity referrals in the Portsmouth, Andover, Basingstoke, Winchester, Southampton and Isle of Wight areas. The aim is to make sure you have access to the right care from day one. SHIP Maternity Referral 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.

Click here to inform the NHS of your pregnancy. It's quick and easy and just takes a couple of minutes.

When completing the self referral questions if you are unsure of your exact LMP (Last Period), then please just add an approximate date. Women wanting their maternity care at either: Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, Andover War Memorial Hospital, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital, Royal Hampshire County Hospital, University Hospital Southampton or Isle of Wight NHS Trust, are now able to refer their pregnancy using this portal. We are working together as SHIP LMS (Southampton, Hampshire Hospitals, Isle of Wight, and Portsmouth Trusts Local Maternity Services) to provide safe maternity care for you.

You can also use this to refer a pregnancy on behalf of a woman.
