Legislation that has been ratified by the British Government making professional indemnity insurance compulsory for all registered health professionals, including midwives. This means that it will become illegal to practice as a midwife without insurance after April.
As we define what it is that we are wanting to achieve, if only with our thoughts, our attention follows. Our creative mind begins to look for the reality that matches our thoughts, and we begin to naturally notice the opportunities that can help lead us to our goals.
How often have you heard women say “I had to be induced “or my baby might have been stillborn. This statement implies that the balance of power lies in the hands of the Midwives and Doctors whom we have to gain permission from when it comes to how we give birth.
“The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the organisational regulator for all health care providers in the UK.
ALL organisations who employ more than one person, are required by law to be registered, inspected and regulated by the CQC.
This gives YOU, the patient – information about how the service is run, if it is effective, safe, caring and responsive to your needs. It is a safety and quality assurance mechanism.”
We have just had our 2018 report conducted by the CQC - You can read the full report here
‘Women told us that the care they received had exceeded their expectations. We saw many testimonials from women and their families that praised the exceptional care offered.’
‘Staff cared for women with compassion. Women valued their relationships with their midwife and there were several examples where staff had gone the extra mile to support women during home and hospital births.’
‘People could access the service when they needed it. Staff responded quickly to initial enquiries and offered free of charge initial consultations to help women decide if the service was right for them.’
‘The service operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Women were offered flexible appointments that were mutually agreed between the woman and her midwife.’
