First joint professor of midwifery to be appointed

  • Comment

An inaugural joint Professor of Midwifery is being recruited by King’s College and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The appointment by the Florence Nightingale School of Midwifery and Chelsea and Westminster will enhance the current maternity service, which attended to 5,000 births last year.

The Trust’s head of midwifery Vivien Bell said: “This appointment is the first of its kind for the trust. It will allow us to lead the way in practice-based research and innovation and help provide women with real choices in how they give birth.

The Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery’s associate dean Alison While added: “It will provide clinical and research leadership in a premier maternity service which is seeking to establish itself as world class.

“The role recognises the importance of evidence-based midwifery practice in delivering quality care to mothers and their babies, and the determination of Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust to be at the forefront of service innovation and high quality care.”
