Rotational Midwives

Explore your potential and the possibilities at the Duchess of Kent Maternity Unit for Women and Babies, which is situated in North West London and is part of the Hillingdon Hospital. We are a busy unit delivering 5000 babies a year. As part of the development and modernisation of our services, we have a dedicated Home Birth team and active Birth Centre team who both caseload the women under their care. We are also implementing the case loading model of care for our vulnerable women with complex social needs.

As a unit we believe in choice, are passionate about women centred care, and are committed to offering a wide range of experiences and development for our staff. The latest 2018 CQC report rated Hillingdon Maternity Good to Outstanding in the 6 Domains inspected.

We offer a strong commitment to professional development through appraisal, personal development plans and postgraduate study. A Practice Development team provides staff with a comprehensive package of training & clinical support and all our midwives are released from clinical work to attend an annual comprehensive mandatory training programme.

We are looking for dedicated and motivated midwives with high standards of clinical and communication skills, who are enthusiastic and willing to develop their skills. The post is a rotational post, which incorporates working in all clinical settings. For newly qualified midwives, we offer a 12 month preceptorship programme, rotating through the clinical areas and supported by the Practice Development team. Following a period of orientation to the unit there will be opportunities for all midwives to enhance their personal development within our midwifery led Birth Centre. Accommodation through the Trust can be provided.

These are exciting times at The Hillingdon, and whether you are an experienced or newly qualified midwife, we invite you to join our dynamic, friendly and supportive midwifery team.
