The world leaders in perinatal mental health, our research-active department carries out projects at a local, national and international level.
Our vibrant and interdisciplinary department includes professional midwives as well as child, neonatal and public health nurses.
We have an influential role in midwifery nationally, with our Lead Midwife for Education being the Chair of the LME strategic reference group.
Our strong links with national, local and regional agencies include the military, where we advise on serving and veterans women’s health. Staff members from our department are delivering expert critical care knowledge in the NHS Nightingale Hospital (based in Harrogate). Our team also includes experts in public health in areas such as immunisation training.
We consistently deliver high-quality professional education for our student midwives and nurses (child) as well as post-registered students. Our exciting range of professional programmes includes BSc Midwifery, the Postgraduate Diploma in Midwifery and BSc Nursing (Child). We also deliver the Professional Midwifery Advocate programme and the University Certificate in Health and Social Care Practice. Other interesting programmes for midwives in the local trusts include pregnancy yoga and Practical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training.
Children's nurses trained at Hull are educated to care for individuals aged from 0 to 18 years, and their families, in hospital and community settings. Our small cohesive group of academics in the field of child health works closely with clinical partners to provide students with a challenging but very rewarding experience.
A highly professional team of academics, we are committed to making a difference to people’s lives at a local, national and international level.
All of our Midwifery programmes are BFI accredited.
