University of Greenwich: Abbie Hadlow and Charlotte Slater

Abbie and Charlotte are part of the world’s first cohort of degree apprentice midwives.


“The degree consisted of working in all areas of maternity and gaining experience in each setting. During each shift I worked alongside a practice supervisor who guided me and helped me to develop my skills to deliver quality care to women and their families.

“The Trust’s organisational development team was behind me every step of the way though offering support, a shoulder to cry on through difficult shifts, guidance, and encouragement.”


“I received a lot of support, especially from my colleagues in the antenatal department, and I will forever be grateful to them. I hope to progress my career with the Trust and become a Band 6 midwife in the future.”
