A leading midwife who was employed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council to advise on midwifery education claims she was “silenced” when she tried to talk about the everyday challenges of maternity care and that midwives are basically seen as “a nuisance” by the regulator.
In her seminal work Nurses of Passchendaele, Christine Hallett describes how on 4 June 1917, 12 nurses who were sleeping in their barracks next to the field hospital awoke to the sound of shrapnel balls and fragments of shell flying in all directions – some travelling with great velocity and punching holes in the walls of wards, shredding pillows and smashing bed screens.
The two day agenda is divided into two main themes. Day 1’s theme is Efficiency and Quality: Striking the Balance, whilst day 2 will address Workforce Transformation.
