Our New Maternity Care Assistants are Now Out on Placement


Having completed their first two weeks with us at the School of Health Nursing and Midwifery our cohort of New Maternity Assistant students are out participating in their allocated maternity placements, and are being supported by their clinical mentors. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) are supporting a new cohort of 20 enthusiastic maternity care assistant students.

The successful candidates had to undergo a robust selection process and secured places against significant competition.

Evelyn Frame, the Chief Midwife at NHSGCC, said:

“This is a great opportunity for all the participants taking part in the programme and at the same time a huge boost to maternity services that we have so many enthusiastic individuals who aspire to work as part of our teams in the future. I look forward to following their progress and working with them as they successfully complete the programme.”

Well done to all of them so far and good luck as they progress in the programme, which they will complete in June 2018.
