''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''

Do you want to work for an organisation who has just received an overall rating of GOOD from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with a rating of OUTSTANDING in care?


Do you consider caring with compassion to be fundamental to your role?

Looking for a new career path in one of the most picturesque parts of the country? Then Morecambe Bay is just the place for you, offering the beautiful Lake District on your doorstep and within easy reaching distance of the City of Lancaster which offers excellent transport links to the main cities in the UK.

Our Trust is recruiting enthusiastic, highly motivated band 5 preceptorship and band 6 midwives, to join our dynamic, dedicated, forward thinking professional team which serves a wide geographical area with rural and urban communities.

These posts are available at an exciting time with the recent launch of the Better Care Together Strategy which has committed to maintaining Obstetric Led Care on our two main sites. Better Care Together has been chosen from a total of 269 bids from across the country that put forward their ideas for how they want to redesign care in their areas, as one of the first 29 of the most innovative plans. These posts offer the opportunity to help develop, shape and contribute to forward-thinking future services.

You will be reliable, flexible, motivated, have excellent clinical skills, a commitment to ongoing learning and development, a commitment to delivering high quality care, and be willing and open to embracing positive change and transformation in order to meet the demands of the community we serve.

If this sounds like you, then we want to hear from you!

The services we provide:

The Maternity Unit at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary (RLI) supports over 2,100 births per year, whilst at Furness General Hospital (FGH) there are just over 1,100 births. Care is provided throughout pregnancy and the intrapartum and postnatal periods by a skilled and dedicated multi-disciplinary team. There is also a busy day assessment unit operational Monday- Friday.

At Westmorland General Hospital, the Helme Chase Maternity Unit (HCMU) offers care to around 800 women throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period. This stand-alone midwife-led unit also supports approximately 300 women to labour and birth. The unit has recently refurbished its active birth room and has approx 50% waterbirths per annum.

The Neonatal Unit at RLI is a Level 2 unit and can provide special and intensive care to up to 10 neonates over 28 weeks' gestation. Neonates younger than 28 weeks' gestation are transferred to a Level 3 unit such as Royal Preston Hospital.

Development Opportunities

Here at Morecambe Bay we are committed to supporting our employees in mandatory training requirements and their professional development. We can offer the following (not an exhaustive list):

- Various in-house leadership programmes
- NLS and opportunity to complete PROMPT course
- Support from Practice Development Team
- Rotation programme to our 3 sites and specialities

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.
