Explore your potential at the Duchess of Kent Maternity Unit for Women and Babies, which is situated in North West London and is part of the Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We are looking for experienced midwives to join our Homebirth and Community Teams.
We are a unit delivering approximately 4600 babies per year, of which 2% deliver with the Homebirth Team. The team runs a 100% case-loading service, has close links with our Midwifery led Birthing Unit, and works closely with the multi-disciplinary team.
Here at Hillingdon we are privileged to have a dedicated Homebirth Team, providing care for women who choose to have their baby at home, throughout every aspect of their pregnancy, all the way from booking to the post-partum period. All of the care is carried out in the woman’s home providing a truly woman centred case loading experience. More recently the Homebirth Team has provided joint care alongside the MLU both antenatally and in the post-partum period to support the continuity of care experienced by women on the MLU caseload. The Homebirth Team are the autonomous heart of the low risk service offered at The Hillingdon Hospital due to this we have seen a significant increase in our women choosing to have their baby at home.
As a unit we believe in choice, we are passionate about women centred care, and are committed to offering a wide range of experiences and development for our staff. We therefore work in partnership with women and their families, as well as the multidisciplinary team.
The latest 2018 CQC report rated Hillingdon Maternity Good to Outstanding in the 6 Domains inspected.
The successful candidates will be dedicated and motivated, with high standards of clinical and communication skills, who are enthusiastic and willing to develop their skills.
Although this position is primarily based in the community setting, you may be expected to rotate into other clinical areas.

Hillingdon Hospital has been part of the NWL Better Births Project and has successfully developed continuity models. This collaborative work has now evolved into the Maternity Transformation project.
If you are interested, we would be delighted to have you join us in further developing these exciting new pathways, offering continuity and providing case loading care to women using different models.
These are exciting times at The Hillingdon Hospital, and we invite you to join our dynamic, friendly and supportive midwifery team.
