Stopping smoking during pregnancy is the single most important change a woman can make to ensure her pregnancy avoids unnecessary complications and to improve the probability of her baby being born full term and healthy.
Are you highly motivated and passionate about leading and developing a high quality service to women and their families ?
Do you possess excellent communication skills and organisational ability to ensure the Long Term Plan is met?
We are looking to recruit an experienced and motivated midwife to work along side a Band 4 Tabaco dependency advisor.
The purpose of the post is to reduce rates of smoking in pregnancy and thus reduce the harm caused by this behaviour.
Main duties of the job

Encouraging a holistic, non-stigmatising approach to help maternity service users, their significant others, and families to stop smoking, therefore giving every child the best start in life and ensuring a smoke free home/environment.
