Be a London Midwife
The CapitalMidwife Programme has been developed in response to the growing need to apply ‘once for London’ solutions to the challenges faced by over 6,000 midwives who make up the London midwifery workforce. These challenges include staff shortages, increased workloads, retention of staff and policy changes.
As part of their work, they are developing a range of products to enable London midwives to develop and grow throughout their career. By developing a framework to be used across London, they can ensure that midwives are supported wherever they live and work.
Every London Midwife is a CapitalMidwife and should be valued, respected, listened to and supported to reach their full potential.
Just as CapitalNurse, CapitalMidwife is supported by a group of NHS Trusts within greater London. As a Capital midwife you would be joining the team at one of the 14 NHS Trust that are part of their prestigious consortium.
Whether you’re an ambitious nurse who’s keen to progress to a more senior role, or you have a partner or spouse who’s looking for a new career, there could be no better place to do it than London. Promotions and job opportunities at all levels abound in this cutting-edge and fast-moving city. With a large number of ‘University’ hospitals in the capital, there’s are also plenty of highly sought-after training opportunities that you’ll be able to access easily.
Of course, there are lots of other reasons to live and work in London, too. As one of the most exciting cities in the world, the capital of England offers every kind of entertainment imaginable, along with a mind-blowing array of attractions, landmarks and places of historical significance. You’d be surprised by how much sightseeing you can do simply by walking around the capital!
London is also one of the most multicultural cities in the world, with more than 200 languages being spoken by its inhabitants, and every type of cuisine on offer at its many restaurants, markets and food stores. In fact, some of our nurses describe the area they live in as a real ‘home from home’, with friends and neighbours who share their cultural heritage, and local events that bring the community together. London prides itself on its diversity, as do its NHS Trusts!
Location and cost of living
The Trusts involved in the CapitalNurse Overseas Recruitment Consortium are all located within the London area and the iconic city centre of the capital is easily accessible by Underground or other public transport. Because of the excellent transport links, very few people in London have their own car, but there are plenty of car sharing schemes in the city, should you ever need one.
City centre aside, London has 33 districts, each with its own unique character and assortment of shops and amenities, schools and recreational areas, which means there are plenty of areas for you to choose from when it comes to finding the right one for you and any family members who might be joining you. You might even get some extra help with the cost of living, with many nurses working in the capital being given an additional allowance that’s often referred to as ‘London weighting’.
