NHS England at Royal College of Midwives Annual Conference, 19-20 October, Harrogate International Centre

The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Annual Conference brings together over 1,000 midwives and student midwives from across the country over two days. The programme offers a range of plenary sessions, hands-on workshops, research seminars and management master classes.

The conference theme for 2016 is ‘Safety, Standards and Experience’.  The conference reflects on the three big debating points within contemporary maternity care.

Talk to NHS England on stand 46

Come and visit the NHS England stand, where you can see and discuss the new model of midwifery supervision for England.  From 1 April 2017, the new model will support midwives to improve outcomes, improve experience, improve system performance, enhance personal professional development and ensure that action to improve quality becomes an ‘intrinsic part of everyone’s job, every day, in all parts of the system’.

NHS England will be on stand 46 with members of the taskforce involved in developing the model, and will be encouraging you to become involved too.
