Continuity of Carer

Band 6 Midwife required for Rotational post, Community and Specialist Continuity Teams

37.5 hours (Permanent post)

Do you want to be part of positive transformation within maternity services?

Are you passionate about personalisation of care and achieving equality and equity for women and their families?

Our service needs a motivated and inspirational Band 6 Midwife to join our maternity team with vacancies available for specialist continuity teams, rotational opportunities within our community, antenatal/postnatal ward, labour ward and low risk birth centre.

You will be a valued member of the team in any area you work. Within the continuity vacancies you will provide personalised continuity to women throughout their antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal journey. The women you care for will be from our areas of greatest deprivation and our non-English speaking, Black, Asian, and mixed ethnic groups. Our aim is to appreciate the diversity of our women, and improve services to optimise outcomes for women and their babies.

Our rotational post will give you the opportunity to utilise and develop your midwifery skills across low and high risk settings, and gain experience within community where you will have the opportunity to take on antenatal clinics and provide postnatal care within families homes.

At Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (ASPH) we were lucky to be one of the early adopters of the Better Births Campaign and have successfully implemented Continuity of Carer with 3 teams currently in place. Here we strive to provide personalised safe care, and working within this team will give you the opportunity to provide high quality clinical care, working closely with a multi-disciplinary team, to deliver families a personalised approach to their maternity journey.

Within ASPH we have a range of services. We provide a homebirth service, an alongside birthing centre, a level 3 Neonatal Unit and high risk maternal and fetal medicine service. This will give you the opportunity to become skilled in all areas of midwifery. An MDT approach is always used within these services and we work extremely closely with our NICU team to provide the best outcome for babies that require their care.

We pride ourselves in our working culture and the senior leadership team strive to improve the wellbeing and satisfaction of our colleagues. You will be provided opportunity for development and training within the trust and courses offsite.

ASPH have recently opened a wellbeing hub and staff will have the opportunity to access the onsite gym and other resources.
