Job description

Job responsibilities

As NLAG has 2 main hospital sites there could be potential also to rotate across site. This can be beneficial as both our maternity units have different models of care.

DPOW (Diana Princess of Wales) has an LDRP Model, this stands for labour, delivery, recovery and postnatal. This model allows women to receive their intrapartum and postnatal care all within one room. The unit has 4 teams with 4/5 delivery rooms, 1 twin room, 2 side rooms and 1 specialty care room on each team including 1 pool room. Within the unit there is an obstetric theatre which runs 24/7 365 days a year and has a designated maternity anaesthetic team who cover this. This streamlines the care we can provide our women and their families.

SGH (Scunthorpe General Hospital) has the traditional antenatal and postnatal ward providing tailored care to each woman all within one area. The layout is typically 2 antenatal, 5 bed bays, 1 postsurgical 4 bed bay, 1 5 bed postnatal bay, 1 transition care 4 bed bay and 3 side rooms. On the floor above is the central delivery suite (CDS). Within CDS is the obstetric theatre which is not used 24/7 however the main theatre is opposite the unit and used out of ours. CDS has 8 delivery rooms, one of which has a pool and HDU room which can accommodate 2 women. There is also a suite specifically for families who have experienced a bereavement which is safe space to allow them time together.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

We strongly value the different perspectives and ideas a diverse workforce brings to deliver better outcomes for our patients. We welcome applications irrespective of peoples age, disability, sex, gender identity and gender expression, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or other personal circumstances.
