Full Time
Do you enjoy working autonomously?

Would your ideal job be to be the first point of contact for women coming into the unit?

Do you enjoy assessing different situations and referring to the correct department or giving advice?

Do you enjoy variety in your job?

If so, we are looking for an experienced Midwife to complement our existing team of Hospital Based Triage Midwives.

Our Triage department is the first point of call for all women coming or calling into the unit.

We are looking for a dynamic, inspirational midwife to transfer their existing skills and interests to our unit. Midwives that join our triage team are based in triage but may be required to be redeployed very occasionally to the delivery suite.

We have level 2 Baby friendly accreditation and rated GOOD at the last CQC inspection in July 2021.

As a trust, we care for approximately 6000 births every year and cover a very diverse population. This is an exciting opportunity for midwives, who are passionate about making a difference to join our team of highly skilled midwives in maternity.

We want to help you develop and enhance your skills and maximise your potential in all aspects of midwifery. We actively encourage staff development and have a fantastic clinical education team to provide our in house, multidisciplinary professional development training. We have excellent links with local universities for post registration development.

Main duties of the job

Our maternity unit includes a Consultant Led Obstetric Unit - consisting of high risk labour and birth rooms (including one fixed birth pool room), High Dependency Care beds, 2 obstetric theatres and recovery areas, bereavement suite and maternity triage area.

Our newly opened Induction of Labour suite caters for all women attending for inpatient induction of labour and includes facilities for complementary therapies including reflexology.

We also have a 21 bedded postnatal ward and 14 bedded antenatal / transitional care ward.

The Serenity Midwife Led Unit, our award winning alongside birth centre, has five birth rooms and a dedicated assessment area to support 1200 births per year.

About us

Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust (SWBT) is an integrated care organ isation with a budget of approximately �600 million and over 7,000 staff. Diversity and social care is at the core of what we do as the Trust provides Community and Acute Services to over half a million people in an urban centre that demands massive regeneration and has substantial premature mortality.

Our new acute hospital, the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital (MMUH), opens in 2024 and will provide care to our local population from first class, purpose-built premises. As a result, the base of this role may change to MMUH from 2024 (or beyond). If this is applicable to your role, you will be informed during the recruitment process and continuing your application with this understanding. The development of the new hospital will play an important role in the regeneration of the wider area and in improving the lives of local people and reducing health inequalities.

We have three newly emerging strategic objectives:
  • Our People - to cultivate and sustain happy, productive and engaged staff
  • Our Patients - to be good or outstanding in everything we do
  • Our Population - to work seamlessly with our partners to improve lives
