What is it like working for The Trust?

“I have worked at Pennine for 13 years. My present post is working within a fantastic team in the birth centre at The Royal Oldham Hospital. The maternity service within Pennine offers
women-centred evidenced based care. I enjoy my role as a Midwife and have been supported to develop my skills and knowledge by attending in-house training and courses within the university setting, also attending courses for alternative therapies to offer a more holistic approach to our women. The Trust values all its staff and works really hard in keeping us informed of changes and improvements.”
