Band 6 Midwives – Maternity High Dependency Team

An exciting opportunity has arisen for midwives who are interested in midwifery high dependency to join and work within a dedicated obstetric high dependency unit at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital.

Queen Charlotte’s Hospital is a dynamic and credible maternity unit. It is well renowned for its women and children’s services and is a tertiary referral maternity unit with a nationally renowned Centre for Fetal Care. It also has the largest neonatal intensive care unit in the country. It has an excellent high risk obstetric service and subsequently cares for many women with highly complicated pregnancies.

A two bedded obstetric high dependency unit is operational within the delivery suite to provide care for women at Level 2 and 3. We frequently carry out invasive monitoring and are also one of the very few obstetric high dependency units that provide respiratory support by means of Optiflo and CPAP.

This is an excellent opportunity for midwives who are enthusiastic, motivated and interested in this area of midwifery and wish to enhance their skills and knowledge to provide higher levels of care to sick obstetric women. Our aim is to provide a 24hr service with midwives who are skilled at caring for the critically ill obstetric woman.

You will be working in a friendly and supportive environment with the opportunity for further education. You will be part of the delivery suite team and therefore will have on occasions the opportunity to maintain normal midwifery, theatre and recovery skills. Support and training will be provided in the form of study days, one to one teaching and in-house workshops by a multi-disciplinary team and lead midwife for HDU.

Midwives must have enthusiasm and interest in this area of midwifery and have had experience in caring for the sick obstetric woman or the critical ill adult patient. Midwives should be willing to undertake further study where applicable as well as being flexible with their rota.
