This opportunity will encourage you to develop your autonomous skills to provide care to women in pregnancy, intrapartum and postnatally.

You will work with your buddy midwife to manage a caseload of women within an area of Frimley Health’s catchment.

You will liaise closely with the multi-disciplinary team to ensure appropriate care planning is in place, where risk factors are present, to ensure fully informed, safe care is offered and provided to our women.

Homebirth Midwife

All midwife practitioners will be Registered Midwives, accountable for their own midwifery practice and will be able to fulfil the following role through the ability to make decisions with current protocols and principles of care in compliance with the NMC’s Midwives Rules and code of Midwifery Practice.

This midwife may be a recently qualified midwife or she/he may be very experienced but she/he will be expected to continue with post-registration education and development to become a confident midwife able to provide care with the women either in the community or hospital environment.

The post holder is required to take responsibility as a prime care provider in either the hospital or community setting. She/he will be confident in providing midwife led care.

We are also proud to host the Defence Medical Group South East at Frimley Park with military surgical, medical and nursing personnel working alongside the hospital's NHS staff providing care to patients in all specialties

The successful candidates will join a small Midwifery team offering low risk care. The team works closely with around 6 colleagues in a supportive, caring and learning environment, supporting students and liaising closely with other members of the wider team, providing excellent and up-to-date care to women accessing the service.
