​Maternity Assessment Day Unit​

About Us

​The Maternity Assessment Day Unit (MADU) is located on Ward K3. It provides an outpatient service for women who are over 18 weeks pregnant and up to six weeks postnatal.

MADU provides a 24 hour / 7 days a week service for women with pregnancy and postnatal conditions that require semi-urgent review. Review of women with conditions of an urgent nature will occur in the Birth Suite.

Referral to the service occurs through the Birth Suite or Antenatal Clinic. The urgency of a women’s condition will be assessed at the time of referral, and priority will be based on urgency.
