The programme should demonstrate a focus on building research capability and capacity, which will embrace the spirit of developing the clinically academic midwife. This midwife will be a confident autonomous practitioner who will be able to demonstrate research capability.
The successful Education provider(s) will be required to enter into contractual arrangement(s) with NHS London through a London Education Contract (LEC) to provide this innovative programme and to enter a placement agreement with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust for provision of clinical placement for students on the programme.
