Calling all NHS Parents, Parents-to-be and Grandparents!! Events currently on hold due to COVID-19

UPDATE FEB 2021

Due to COVID-19 we have been unable to hold our usual NHS Parents Events. We are pleased to announce, starting from March 2021 we will be holding monthly Virtual Maternity sessions. The sessions will be split into three groups. The first being “Virtual Maternity Workshops”. These sessions are aimed at staff who have not yet commenced maternity leave or are thinking about pregnancy/adoption. “Maternity Coffee and Catch up” sessions will be held for staff currently on adoption or maternity leave. These are very informal, non-judgement, catch-up sessions to offer some support and interaction to parents. Of course babies/children are welcome to these sessions too. Finally, our “Return to Work Workshops” are aimed at staff preparing to return to work. A Childcare Coordinator will be available at these session to answer any questions you may have.

Please see our event schedule for the next available sessions. To book your place on the sessions, please email chidcare.coordinator@bdct.nhs.uk with your name, email address you would like the MS Teams invitation sending to, your phone number, the Trust you are  employed by and the session you would like to attend.
