New midwifery research post for Cardiff

  • Comment

Cardiff University has created a new professor of midwifery post.

Billie Hunter has been appointed to the position with the university’s School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies, where she will develop and lead clinical midwifery research.

The post is supported by the Royal College of Midwives and with start up funding from the Welsh government.

Sheila Hunt, dean and head of the school, said she welcomed “the vision, commitment, collaboration and support” from both the RCM and the Welsh government in creating the post.

RCM general secretary Cathy Warwick said: “We are delighted with the appointment and hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership with Cardiff University.”

Chief nursing officer for Wales Jean White added: “The appointment of professor Hunter to Cardiff University will give a firm foundation for the midwifery and maternal health care research agenda in Cardiff that should improve the lives of childbearing women in Wales and in the wider world.”

Cardiff University is also home to the Royal College of Nursing professor of nursing Danny Kelly, who joined the school in September 2011.
