After four successful Walsall midwifery recruitment events, another session has been arranged for next month.
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust is keen to attract midwives for a range of Band 5 and Band 6 roles both in Walsall Manor Hospital and as part of its Community Midwives team. And virtual sessions will also be set up for those unable to attend in person.
Outpatients Matron Laura Parsons said: “Please keep your diary free if you are interested in this event!
“We are the most amazing and nurturing team to work for and we have some great opportunities within the hospital as well as in the community.”
Walsall Healthcare offers a host of specialist midwifery services to support mums-to-be and their families and runs an Early Bird Clinic which means women can book directly and very early in their pregnancy journey.
It also offers an excellent orientation and preceptorship programme to support new starters and is involved in research through the PRODUCT study and the Oasi2 trial (find out more here).
“Midwives attend dedicated study days using PROMPT and simulation equipment to ensure teams’ training is up to date and Professional Midwifery Advocates are also available to provide professional support for both staff and service users.
In addition, Walsall Healthcare is pleased to offer The Clinical Fellowship Programme for Midwives.
This means Qualified Band 5 and Band 6 Midwives will get;
- A substantive Midwifery post
- Access to a fully funded master’s degree
- A career and professional development plan
- Coaching and mentoring
The Clinical Fellowship Programme (CFP) has been developed in partnership with The University of Wolverhampton and provides an opportunity for midwives to study up to and including masters level i.e. PG Cert, PG Dip or Masters, all fully funded by the Trust.
Walsall Healthcare also has a freestanding Midwifery-Led Unit.
The recruitment events will run from 9am-2pm on 9 April in the area outside the Antenatal Clinic on Route 122 of Walsall Manor Hospital. These sessions will be face to face, adhering to Infection Prevention and Control measures. Candidates will need to wear a face covering, observe distancing and practice good hand hygiene. Virtual sessions can also be arranged.
