Since we launched our national recruitment campaign in February, 1999, 497 midwives have contacted the National Health Service in England about returning to work; and 2,593 nurses and midwives have returned to employment in the NHS in England since the campaign began. No figures are available on how many of these have returned to employment as midwives.

This year's national recruitment campaign in England will be launched later this month. New figures to show how many midwives have returned to employment in the NHS in England will be compiled on a monthly basis after the new campaign is launched.
