    How to register at a local hospital

    Hi All,

    I have been seeing Dr. Ghosh and am due around 2nd June. I have never visited a local hospital/clinic. I am still on waiting list at Matilda and it seems like very unlikely I will get it now.

    I have to register at Queen Mary hospital for a backup. I know its a bit late but I think they cant refuse me now. I am planning to go there tomorrow. Will there any specific hours that I would need to go there in.

    Please tell me what documents I need and what is the procedure (i hope its simple and easy). I have listed a few docs here

    1. Passport
    2. HKID
    3. Reference letter from Dr. Ghosh (is it needed)?
    .....

    Many Thanks for your help

    you don't register at QMH itself. You register at Tsan Yuk Hospital. They will transfer your records to QMH for you.

    If I were holding out for a place at Matilda, I probably would only just book at the public hospital when I was 34-36 weeks or so personally... I'm kind of more of the opinion "why bother with something you may not need anyway?" And once you're in the system they want you to come to regular appointments with them as well which are a bit of a pain if you don't plan on delivering there...
