New head of midwifery for Peterborough and Stamford

  • Comment

Fran Gregory has been appointed as the head of midwifery at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

She joined the trust on 19 October and was previously the matron for maternity at Lincoln County Hospital.

She said: “I am delighted to have joined Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals as the Head of Midwifery at a time when maternity services are high on the NHS agenda.

“The excellent facilities for the women and babies of Peterborough and the surrounding area have been enhanced by the safe, quality care that is delivered on a daily basis,” she said. 

She added: “I look forward to working with the multi-disciplinary team to further develop the service in conjunction with the women and their families.”

Jo Bennis, the trust’s chief nurse, noted that Ms Gregory was joining the trust at a time when its services were “growing” and its maternity unit at Peterborough City Hospital was “becoming increasingly busy”.

“On behalf of the board of directors I would like to welcome Fran to her new role,” she said. “We look forward to working with her as we continue to develop our services for women and their babies.”

The maternity department, based in the Women’s and Children’s Unit at Peterborough City Hospital offers two birthing pools, a midwife-led birthing unit for mothers in low risk pregnancies, and a transitional care ward for women and babies who need a longer stay in hospital after birth.

In 2014-15, there were 4,939 babies delivered by the trust’s midwives.
