Working as a nurse on the maternity ward at Frimley Park

Through tremendous commitment and hard work from our team, our maternity service at Frimley Park hospital has built an excellent reputation. It is a very busy unit where approximately 5500 women choose to access maternity care every year.  We are praised as compassionate, empathetic and kind in our ‘Friends and Family’ surveys.

It is a very exciting time for our maternity services at the Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust. We opened the Mulberry Birth Unit in 2015 and are seeing an increasing number of births in our beautiful midwife led rooms. The midwives there are encouraged to practice autonomously, using skills such as aromatherapy, hypno-birthing and massage. We are proud of the opportunities we offer our midwives and continued professional development is high on our agenda.

The labour ward has had a total refurbishment recently and consists of 13 ensuite labour rooms. The labour ward is well led by enthusiastic and passionate senior midwives. The postnatal ward is a very fast moving environment consisting of 31 beds and we are very proud of the commitment of our staff to maintain our BFI status.

Our band 5 midwives are offered an extensive preceptorship programme and given the opportunity to gain all of their competencies within a year, to enable them to progress automatically to band 6.

We would like to invite you to join our excellent friendly forward thinking team who are all constantly striving to maintain a high quality standard of maternity service where you will be a valued member of the team.
