An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Team DBTH. We are looking for an inspirational, enthusiastic midwife and leader, to provide care to this vulnerable group of women. The role includes supporting women with complex social needs related to drug and alcohol problems through a multi-agency focus to provide integrated and co-ordinated care and support with the goal of minimising risk and maintaining effective and functional family units. The role is 50% funded by RDaSH and the midwife will work closely with the Aspire Drug and Alcohol Service.

The post holder will be accountable for the care of women with Drug and Alcohol issues within Doncaster and Bassetlaw. The successful candidate will lead a well-established service and support an environment where the patient is central to all decision making and the delivery of high quality compassionate care is the prime objective.

This includes acting as an expert resource to both the Midwifery and the wider multi-disciplinary team to support them in the delivery of high quality patient focused care. Through effective clinical leadership and role modelling you will inspire, motivate and empower others. This will require the post holder to be highly visible and to have an accessible approach for women, their relatives/ carers and staff.

You will be fully supported with a robust induction programme and receive continued clinical leadership, practice and professional development from the Head of Midwifery and Matrons alongside our Education team.
