Current issues in practice
This programme is for qualified Midwives who have lapsed registration with the NMC and who wish to return to practice and re-register with the NMC. Provision of Return to Practice has recently changed to an employer led model with places commissioned by Health Education South West (HeSW).
In conjunction with the University, healthcare organisations such as NHS Trusts, GP practices and independent providers will be supporting midwives, nurses and health visitors to return to practice with the potential of employment on successful completion of the programme.Â
The programme has six face-to-face study days which are spread out throughout the duration of the programme (which will be also be attended by returnee nurses and health visitors). Â
In addition, there is a requirement for returnee midwives to evidence a minimum of 35 hours midwifery-specific sessions/learning activities, one which will be provided in addition to the six study days previously mentioned.
The duration of the programme will be dependent on the achievement of 450 clinical practice hours and the number of hours you can spend in your practice placement per week. It is anticipated the programme will be completed between four and nine months.
