St Michael’s Hospital, Bristol
A three month obstetric module at St Michael’s Hospital, part of the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHB), is available for senior trainees wishing to pursue an interest in obstetrics. The labour ward sees 5000 deliveries a year and has a 25% epidural rate. It is a tertiary referral centre for complex maternal and neonatal care. This includes complex cardiac disease.
As well as the potential to develop research/audit interests, there is the opportunity to attend management meetings including CDS working party and St Michael’s clinical governance meetings. There are also opportunities to develop an interest in teaching by becoming involved in the Emergency and HDU Study days, and midwifery, obstetric and medical student updates.
During daytime hours the senior obstetric trainee is part of the obstetric anaesthetic team, along with a junior trainee and consultant covering labour ward and the elective Caesarean sections. After 5pm, the junior obstetric trainee covers labour ward, and the senior obstetric trainee joins the 2nd on call rota which covers general theatres across the UHB precinct as well as obstetrics.
For more information or if you wish to express an interest in doing the module please speak to Mark Scrutton.
