We are looking for midwives to join our newly established continuity of carer teams, carrying their own caseload and providing intrapartum care in our MLU or Obstetric unit.

We are proud to have been rated as good overall with an Outstanding rating for Caring in our most recent CQC inspection and to also have been highly rated by our service users in the last published CQC women's survey which is testament to the high standards of care we aspire to.

Our service provides both consultant and midwifery led care, some midwives work in a model of integrated care which provides the opportunity for rotation between the maternity unit and community setting.

The successful candidates will be able to provide both high and low risk midwifery care and have achieved confidence and competence in waterbirth, perineal suturing and cannulation.
