Urgent call for volunteer healthcare professionals

If you’re a healthcare professional and have time to volunteer in London, we’re in need of your help!

We need doctors, midwives, and nurses to join our team of clinicians, to help us keep the My Body Back Project going. You’ll be working as part of a team dedicated to serving the needs of women who have experienced sexual assault. It’s an incredibly rewarding job, although due to the nature of the service it can be both difficult and challenging at times. On the flip side, a lot of gratitude will come your way and you’ll see first hand the difference you’re making with your skill and care.

 

If you’re a midwife, you’ll need: 

  • NMC registration
  • To be female
  • To have a passion for working with women who have experienced sexual violence
  • To be happy to work within an environment driven by a feminist ethos
  • Ideally be a Band 6, 7 or 8 midwife

If you’re a doctor, you’ll need: 

  • GMC registration
  • To be female
  • To have cervical screening training, plus your PIN number if you want to work in our cervical screening/sexual health clinic. If you’d like to volunteer in our Maternity Clinic, a cervical screening registration isn’t necessary, but obstetrics should be your chosen specialty.
  • To have a passion for working with women who have experienced sexual violence
  • To be happy to work within an environment driven by feminist ethos
  • Ideally be of registrar orconsultant grading and an experienced smear taker. If you’re a doctor of a different grade but an experienced smear taker or due to be accepted on an obstetric training programme, please do still get in contact as long, as you’ve successfully completed your F1 and F2 years.

If you’re a nurse, you’ll need: 

  • NMC registration
  • To be female
  • To have cervical screening training, plus your PIN number
  • To have a passion for working with women who have experienced sexual violence
  • To be happy to work within an environment driven by a feminist ethos
  • Ideally be a Band 6,  7 or 8 nurse, with experience in either gynaecology, sexual health or women’s health, and an experienced smear taker.

 

As a doctor or nurse volunteering in our cervical screening and sexual health clinic, you’ll have the support of an experienced gynaecologist and nurse consultant, as well as working closely with our consultant psychologist to care for women as part of a multi-disciplinary team. If you’re a midwife or doctor volunteering in our maternity clinic, you’ll have the support of a consultant midwife and obstetrician.

 

If you meet all the relevant requirements, please email Pavan at pavan@mybodybackproject.com with your CV and a covering letter.
