Joint statement on the return of midwifery students to the maternity service at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board and Bangor University recognise that excellence in the education and training of midwives is important for two key reasons. Firstly, we will secure the midwifery workforce of the future. Secondly, providing placements for midwifery students can contribute to the general culture of learning and development within midwifery services. In 2015, student midwives were temporarily withdrawn from the maternity service in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd following concerns raised by stakeholders. We have been committed to returning midwifery students to the service.
