When referring pregnant women to an antenatal clinic many general practitioners and midwives presented details of their care in an incomplete and inconsistent manner. As a result, hospital staff often had insufficient basic data from which to work. We recommend that those providing care decide what information they need and make the rationale of collecting this information the subject of a well-evaluated local education programme.
