Maternity

Our maternity service is the largest maternity provider in Victoria providing care to over 9,000 women each year across three hospitals: Monash Medical Centre (Clayton), Dandenong and Casey.

To make a referral, please complete the Maternity Booking Referral Template. This enables us to triage all women’s booking requests equitably. Bookings are triaged considering several factors including : the level of care available at the site, the woman’s residential locality, the hospital site capacity for births, together with each woman’s identified preferences.

Doctors can advise women that they will be contacted by the call centre within 1 to 2 weeks. Should a woman not hear back from the booking service within this timeframe the referral should be followed up by fax or email enquiry to the call centre.

As well as faxing this form, please give a copy to your patient along with a referral letter containing any other relevant information, to bring to their first Monash Health appointment.
