    Default Shared care at Queanbeyan Hospital

    Hi, I'm looking for some help on how to get things organised for shared care at Queanbeyan Hospital. I've just found out that I'm pregnant, my regular GP is in Canberra and as I live in Queanebyan, I need to find another doctor.
    Do I need to contact the doctors surgery first? (was thinking of seeing Dr Davis as I've heard good things about him), or do I need to talk to the hospital first? Sorry, this seems like such a stupid question, but I'm feeling really lost and don't know who to talk to. Any help wold be great.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I am not in queenbeyan, but I can tell you how I set up my shared care. You have to go a GP in your area first, and after doing some tests, the GP will send your referral to the hospital. This referral is usually done before 12 weeks. Then, you will get your first appointment with the midwives. The GP will also refer you to your NT scan as well as Morph scan.

    Thanks

    I finally got around to finding out, so if anyone else is searching, you need to fill in the hospital booking sheet first and wait for them the arrange your first midwife appointment. Following that, you can ring the doctor's surgery and they will schedule your appointments around that.

    Thanks!!
