A student midwife at Hinchingbrooke Hospital has been shortlisted for an award from The Nursing Times.

Vicky Gois, a student at Angelia Ruskin University and currently on placement at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, is one of nine nominees for the Student Midwife of the Year category.

The category aims to recognise an outstanding student midwife and celebrate the understanding and communication skills needed in this field – from clinical skills to academic achievement, as well as interpersonal skills which underpin the treatment of this patient group and relate to their families.

Vicky was nominated by Holly Ingram, who works at Anglia Ruskin University and is also a Clinical Midwife at the Trust, with several people from the Trust and University also sending in accolades for her resilience, compassion, kindness and enthusiasm to the midwifery profession. 

Vicky said: “I am very thankful and lucky to have been nominated for this award. I have had brilliant mentors during my placements and excellent support at university and as a student.  I feel privileged to be involved in women’s care and to be nominated for the award is extremely flattering and overwhelming. I have loved every minute of my training, the highs and the lows.”

Rowena Chilton, Interim Head of Midwifery at Hinchingbrooke, said: “We are incredibly proud of Vicky and the work she has done whilst on placement with us. She is a great asset to our workforce and is going to make an amazing midwife. We wish her all the best for the awards ceremony next month.”

The awards ceremony will be presented at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday 28 April.
