  • Midwives from Walsall at the event

Fifteen Midwives have been recruited to work across Dudley, Sandwell and West Birmingham, Walsall and Wolverhampton NHS Trusts following a successful event held to promote the opportunities available in hospitals and community services across the area.

The Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS) organised yesterday’s session at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill, to showcase the training and development opportunities available and highlight the work of specialist Midwives who work across all communities.

This was the first joint recruitment event across the LMNS and the first event of its kind across the Black Country ICB (Integrated Care Board).

Lucy Murcott, LMNS Workforce Lead said: “We had a fantastic day with our teams across the four Trusts whose energy, passion and enthusiasm played a huge part in selling our area as a great place to work.

“It was wonderful to see so many potential new colleagues who were able to talk to existing staff about the services we provide as well as some of the exciting future improvements we’re all working on. And to be able to recruit a total of 15 new Midwives is extremely encouraging. Our new colleagues will be an asset to our organisations and we’re looking forward to welcoming them into their new working environment.”

Lucy added that the event was also an example of true collaboration across the LMNS.

“To see teams from all four Trusts being able to network, share their innovation and celebrate each other’s achievements was incredible. We collectively all want the same thing which is to provide safe, high-quality care to all who access maternity and neonatal services and give them an excellent experience at a significant period in their lives.”

Ana Yepez, one of the #RealMidwivesofWalsall from Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust said it had been a “really worthwhile” event.
