Perinatal Statewide Consultant Advice Line
South Australian healthcare providers requiring urgent or emergency obstetric and neonatal clinical advice are encouraged to phone the SA Perinatal Advice Line to receive perinatal clinical advice from an Obstetrician or Neonatologist consultant.
SA Perinatal Advice Line telephone: (08) 8161 9999
This service should only be used when it is considered that the patient’s clinical condition warrants urgent advice, retrieval or transfer. General enquiries about perinatal matters should be directed through the usual lines of communication, as outlined in the SA Perinatal Practice Guidelines.
The Perinatal Statewide Consultant Advice Line makes a perinatal consultant available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in the urgent or emergency care of the perinatal patient.
