RCM seeks a Service User Chair for New Maternity Partnership Network

on 02 October 2019 Maternity Services

The RCM is looking for a recent user of maternity services to help create and run an exciting new network, with the intention of improving the experiences and outcomes for all of those involved in maternity services.

The network will bring together service users, midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives to support and influence the RCM in all areas of its work, to further align the needs of our members and those of the women and families they work with.

The role involves working with the RCM to recruit, establish and develop the network, and act as Chair for the first year. This Service User Chair will use their personal experiences and work in an advisory capacity with identified RCM staff in our central London headquarters. It is expected that the role will require a time commitment of approximately 3-4 days per month. The Chair will be reimbursed at a daily rate and for travel and childcare expenses.

To discuss this opportunity, those interested should contact Kate Brintworth, the RCM’s Head of Maternity Transformation at [email protected]. Further details of the role can be found in the information pack. An expression of interest form, and equal opportunities form below. These forms should be sent by email to [email protected].

The closing date for expressions of interest is Monday 21 October at 5pm. The RCM may stop receiving expressions of interest at an earlier date if a large number are received.
