Abstract

Antenatal care involves the screening, diagnosis and monitoring of the “at-risk” fetus using ultrasound. When a problem is detected by an ultra-sonographer (e.g. a fetal anomaly or small sized baby), the mother is referred to a local specialist or the regional FM centre in Newcastle for confirmation of the diagnosis, counselling and management. At present, three consultant-led maternity units in Cumbria refer FM cases to Newcastle. This means that patients travel for 6 hours at their own expense. Telemedicine could help in reducing travel and improving access to consultants. This new service is aimed at establishing a videoconferencing infrastructure between the obstetric ultrasound department at West Cumberland Hospital and the Fetal Medicine (FM) centre in Newcastle. It is currently in its implementation stage.
