The Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich Perinatal Service provides specialist assessment and intervention to women experiencing significant mental health difficulties during pregnancy and up to one year after birth.
We offer specialist assessment, treatment, support and advice to ensure a woman stays as well as possible through this period. If a woman becomes unwell, we will support her and her family to ensure she has the right care and intervention to meet her needs.
The service does not offer crisis or emergency care.
We are a multidisciplinary team. This means we are a group of professionals who specialise in different areas of medicine but work together to make decisions about how to care for patients. Our team includes:
The team works closely with maternity services, health visitors, adult mental health services and GPs.
