Perinatal Psychiatric Community Service

We prevent and treat serious mental illness during and after pregnancy. Our aim is to maximise the mental and emotional wellbeing of mother and child. We have a community team and a specialised inpatient ward.

The community team provides advice, consultation and treatment from assessment through to discharge. We liaise closely with the inpatient unit.

Appointments are offered in clinics or in your home depending according to your need.

We offer this service to women aged 16 plus who will have care of their infant. We see women during pregnancy and up to one year after birth. 

 

Service opening hours

Monday – Friday, 9am - 5pm (excluding bank holidays)
 

Accessing our service

Women and/or their families who have concerns regarding the woman's mental health should consult their GP, midwife, health visitor or other health professional. They can advise whether we are the most appropriate service to help and if so, make a referral.

We don't offer appointments to all women referred as we may feel a different service would be better for them.

Women under our care can access the service at:

Mill Fields Centre, Millbrook Mental Health Unit:  0115 956 0844

Queens Medical Centre: 0115 970 9339/0115 875 4627

Please note that parking can be very difficult on hospital sites. There is a charge for parking.
