An innovative leader to champion and advance pelvic health care throughout the Black Country’s Maternity Services is being sought.

The Advanced Practitioner Physiotherapist post will be the Clinical Lead for the Perinatal Pelvic Health Service (PPHS) and is being hosted by The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust.

The successful candidate will support the transformation of Maternity and Physiotherapy care and implement pelvic health innovation across the Black Country Local Maternity and Neonatal System (LMNS).

Pelvic health looks at the management of the bladder, bowel and reproductive organs and plays an important role in physical, mental, social, and sexual wellbeing. During pregnancy, and after birth, problems can occur with pelvic health and these may include Urinary Tract Infections, bowel incontinence, prolapses, third or fourth-degree tears and back and pelvic pain.

Talisha Duncan, Project Manager for the PPHS, said: “This is a system-wide approach across the Black Country LMNS to support an important area of healthcare that can have a significant impact on people’s lives.

“We want to enhance the service through innovative projects, service re-design, education and training for staff and set up peer support and mentoring.

“The post holder will work with the Midwives across the LMNS, the Black Country ICS (Integrated Care System) and professional colleagues within other acute Trusts as well as local community services to understand current provision. The Black Country is a welcoming place to work, and the successful candidate will be helping to make a real difference within Maternity Physiotherapy Services.”
