Specialist areas:
General, Hospital
Start Date:
Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
Job Ref:

As Clinical Fellow in Midwifery, you will play a key role in the NMPA at the Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics (The Centre), based within the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). This is a great opportunity to be part of a team that carries out high quality clinical audits and quality improvement projects, in women’s and girls’ health care globally.

About us
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is a professional membership association dedicated to improving women’s health care across the world. We do this by setting standards for clinical practice, providing doctors with training and lifelong learning, and working with partners to advocate for women’s health and health care across their life course. We are a global leader in this specialist area, supporting 16,000 members in the UK and internationally.

We are a values-led organisation placing high standards, innovation, openness, inclusiveness and trust at the centre of all we do.

Funded by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), the National Maternity and Perinatal Audit (NMPA) is a national audit that evaluates the quality of care received by women and new-borns cared for by hospital services in England, Wales and Scotland. Supported by a number of partners including Royal Colleges, Universities and public bodies, the NMPA aims to assess the organisation of maternity services as well as to provide timely, high quality data that compares the care provided and outcomes achieved by providers of maternity care across a range of audit measures.

About the role
You will lead on the midwifery aspects of the continuous clinical audit, providing day-to-day clinical support and contributing to analyses, which require in-depth, specialist clinical knowledge. You will support communication with NHS commissioners, providers and individual clinicians as well as parents, the public and the third sector, representing and reporting on the audit and its results.
Working alongside your colleagues in Neonatal and Obstetrics, you will play a fundamental role and be regarded as the ‘engine’ of the Audit, supporting both the sprint and continuous clinical audit’s design, management, analysis and reporting of data. In turn, you will have the opportunity to gain knowledge in aspects of maternity and neonatal care, which may not be routinely experienced in clinical practice.

As the ideal candidate, you will have:
• Midwife qualification
• Good numeracy (e.g. good pass at A level mathematics or equivalent)
• Good understanding of health-related research methods
• Understanding of epidemiological research (study design, data collection and analysis)
• Evidence of presenting research / audit results at professional conferences
• Good understanding of the NHS and obstetrics/gynaecology services

As an important member of the team, you will be located in our brand new, bespoke offices in London Bridge. We offer a friendly working environment with an excellent benefits package that includes:
• Generous holiday entitlement
• Flexible working hours
• First class pension scheme
• Season ticket loan
• Subsidised gym membership
• Free staff lunch
