There has never been a better time to join us in the NHS at Ashford & St Peters Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We provide acute and planned inpatient and outpatient care for our local community with a strong commitment to staff health and wellbeing. We are committed to providing continuous professional development, staff benefits and flexibility to shape our workforce around our patient care.

Come and work at Ashford and St Peters NHS Trust!

All of our maternity staff have an essential role within our teams to provide high quality, compassionate care and support to women, birthing people, their babies and their families. This is an opportunity to make a difference whether you are looking for a change in career or are at the start of your midwifery career.

The COVID Pandemic has been a challenging time for all of us, but it has also given us some moments of great reflection. Here at Ashford and St Peter's we are all really proud to be part of the NHS and to be part of a Trust that aims to provide a high quality patient experience and to be an excellent place to work for all staff.

Why choose us? We have several continuity teams including the Abbey birth centre team, we have a long running bereavement team, a high risk fetal medicine team, level 3 NICU, a biomechanics programme, a pilot site for Tommy’s app and plenty of professional and educational opportunities.

This range of services 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 feel it is important to create a positive working environment where staff feel valued appreciated and supported by their colleagues. Each month we open nominations for a team member of the month to ensure supportive feedback is given to those members of staff who go above and beyond within their role and that we celebrate the impact our staff have on the care we provide. We have also held Maternity and Women’s health awards in 2020 and 2021 to celebrate all staff contributing to the division which includes a Midwife of the year award voted by the local community who have been cared for at ASPH maternity. 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.
