As we celebrate International Day of the Midwife, we want to take this opportunity to thank our midwives at the University of Salford. We are proud of the work that our midwives do every day and we thank them for their bravery, kindness and compassion throughout the pandemic.

“What a privilege it is to be Deputy Director in Nursing and Midwifery in
the School of Health and Society. I am so proud to be part of a
passionate, innovative and inspiring team of academics who work
tirelessly to improve the student experience. It has also been a humbling
experience watching our Nursing and Midwifery students rise to the
challenges presented to them over the last 12 months. Nursing and
Midwifery students and staff both nationally and internationally deserve
to be recognised and their endeavours celebrated in this international
year of the Nurse and Midwife.”

Deputy Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Dawn Hennefer
