Philosophy of the Bath Midwifery Supervision Team
The values of the supervisory team aim to enable midwives to be confident and competent practitioners, well equipped to provide the highest standards of evidence based midwifery care which is individualised and family centred.
This page is monitored by a Supervisor of Midwives from the Royal United Hospital.
Supervisors of Midwives are experienced midwives who undergo additional education and training and are appointed by the Local Supervising Authority.
The supervisory team is committed to the provision of a maternity service that is sensitive and responsive to the diverse needs of the local population. Women can contact a supervisor directly to discuss any aspect of their maternity care. Midwives can choose a Supervisor that they feel comfortable with, and can discuss any issues they might have, and get guidance and support when needed.
Supervision of Midwives is a statutory responsibility which provides a mechanism for support and guidance to every midwife practising in the United Kingdom. The purpose of Supervision of Midwives is to enhance the safety of women and babies by actively promoting excellence in midwifery practice.
We support practising midwives to provide excellence in care. We are also able to support women and are available for them to discuss any aspects of their maternity care.
Supervisors make sure that each midwife keeps their midwifery skills and knowledge up to date, so that the care given to the mothers, babies and families is of the best standard possible.
