Nurses and midwives

Continuing education and training is essential to ensure nurses' and midwives' ongoing competence and development, which in turn contributes to the provision of quality patient care.

The coordination of the education and training activity for all nurses and midwives across all the clinical areas is therefore a high priority within the organisation.

In addition to approximately 3000 nurses and midwives employed within the Trust, there can be more than 400 nursing and midwifery students undergoing their practice placements across 118 different clinical areas.
