Welcome to our 39 newly recruited Midwives
By Bill Heaney
The local Health Board have welcomed 39 newly qualified midwives after they completed their midwifery degrees at the University of the West of Scotland.
Evelyn Frame, chief midwife, said: “We are delighted to welcome the 39 newly qualified midwives who have joined our current midwifery workforce.
“It’s fantastic to recruit such a large group of midwives at one time and it shows that we are seen as a wonderful place for midwives to develop their careers.
“These new appointments will ensure continued support for the already high level of quality midwifery care being provided to our women and their families across Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
“The midwives have now completed their induction programme with us which is designed to support them in transitioning into their new roles.
“Each one has a development plan for their early years in the role to ensure that they continue to build and develop their skills in all areas of midwifery.
“We are investing in our future by supporting our midwives and ensuring we’re always well placed to meet the developments we see in the continual evolution of maternity care.”
