Join us at this very exciting time as Poole Hospital and Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals have just merged into the University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust.

We have ambitious plans to develop our sites, making even better use of our combined resources to serve our population most effectively.

You will now be one of the first new employees of University Hospitals Dorset and you will be taking up the many opportunities that Dorset has to offer in the way of a rewarding work life balance.

We are located within an area of amazing beauty which includes opportunities to drive, walk,  run, swim or cycle in the New Forest , in the Purbecks, along miles of golden beaches and the Jurassic coastline.   Bournemouth is a vibrant university town with a wide selection of restaurants and cafes; theatres, cinemas and sporting activities and Poole attracts many visitors, has a large natural harbour and is perfect for water sports or relaxing at a quayside restaurant. 

Transport links are excellent with Bournemouth International airport, Cross-channel ferry terminals at Poole and direct train access to London. 

Please note all staff being recruited are expected to be available to work flexibly across our new Trust sites when service demands require it.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an appropriately experienced registered midwife with excellent leadership skills to join our senior midwifery team at University Hospitals Dorset.

The successful candidate will be responsible for providing leadership for the management of clinical and non-clinical risk, and serious untoward incident investigation processes within the maternity unit and external reporting.

You will be working closely with the Maternity Risk and Governance Manager, the Lead Obstetrician for Risk, the Clinical Director, the Senior Midwifery Management team and wider MDT in providing a co-ordinated approach to risk management within the maternity unit and the wider Trust.

We are looking for an excellent communicator with good organisational skills who works well as part of a team and is able to work in partnership across different professional groups.

The Maternity Service is currently based across two sites, delivers over 4500 women per annum and is the centre for high risk care across East Dorset. Based on the Poole site is the Central Delivery Suite which has 8 birthing rooms, 2 obstetric theatres, a 2 bedded Maternity HDU and 3 bedded recovery area. Adjacent to the Delivery Suite is a 5 bedded midwifery led unit. Our Outpatient and Community services are based across both Poole and Bournemouth sites.

The role comes with the excellent benefits package associated with a NHS permanent contract, including:

  • Highly competitive leave package (27 days plus public holidays, rising to 29 days after 5 years’ service).
  • Generous employer pension scheme.
  • A variety of salary sacrifice schemes i.e. childcare vouchers and car scheme.

The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have now merged into the University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust.
