At the end of 2017 we welcomed 20 newly qualified midwives to Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals – to work across our community midwife services, antenatal clinics, Abbey Birth Centre, Labour Ward and Joan Booker postnatal ward.

Lauren Brown, Practice Development Midwife, said: ‘It’s great to welcome them on board, they are dedicated to helping us provide excellent care to women and their babies. I look forward to watching them develop their careers at our hospitals.’
