@NHSGGC Welcome 39 New @uwshls Midwives

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde have welcomed 39 newly qualified midwives to the Health Board after they completed their midwifery degrees wit us here at the University of the West of Scotland.

Evelyn Frame, Chief Midwife, said:

“We are delighted to welcome the 39 newly qualified midwives who have joined our current midwifery workforce. It’s fantastic to recruit such a large group of midwives at one time and it shows that we are seen as a wonderful place for midwives to develop their careers. These new appointments will ensure continued support for the already high level of quality midwifery care being provided to our women and their families across Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The midwives have now completed their induction programme with us which is designed to support them in transitioning into their new roles.”

Each midwife in NHS GG&C has a development plan for their early years in the role to ensure that they continue to build and develop their skills in all areas of midwifery. @NHSGGC are investing more in maternity services and by supporting their midwives they are  ensuring that they are always well placed to meet the developments seen as maternity care evolves.
