Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust (FHFT) is the main NHS employer of midwives in Frimley Health & Care. Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust is a great place to work and progress your career in the Midwifery profession.
It is the fourth largest trust to deliver maternity services in England, with a Director of Midwifery for the Trust and a dedicated Head of Midwifery at both its Frimley Park and Wexham Park hospital sites, a team of Matrons and Practice Development team to not only support you, but to enable our midwives and support workers to deliver high quality care to all our women and progress the National Maternity Transformation Agenda.
The Trust cares for 9,900 women each year. There are two sites that have both midwifery and obstetric-led services: Frimley Park, which caters for approximately 5,500 women, and; Wexham Park, catering for approximately 4,400 births per year. Both sites have birth centres, en-suite labour rooms, antenatal inpatient beds, postnatal beds, transitional care cots, maternity assessment centre/triage facilities and antenatal outpatient clinics.
There’s never been a more exciting time to build your career at FHFT, one of the country’s largest and most respected hospital trusts. Recently the Trust has invested £150 million in new facilities to create the best environments for patients and staff. The projects include a new state-of-the-art Emergency Assessment Centre at Wexham Park Hospital, a newly planned care hospital in Ascot and a £10m upgrade to maternity and gynaecology services at Wexham Park which opened in January 2018.

New maternity website for local women and families
We take our commitment to women and families really seriously. We have developed a comprehensive website to support those planning to start a family, those who are pregnant and for those women and families who have just welcomed a new baby into their lives. This site was developed and tested with local women, midwives and doctors.
If you have previously been on the NMC register as a midwife and are interested in returning to practice more information is available here.
