The Anaemia Midwife Advisor is part of the Medical Team covering the UK and Ireland. It is a non-promotional field based role and some travelling therefore will be required throughout the region.

A number of nights away from home per year should be expected and this will be dependent on the business need. Travel by car, train, and flight are all options to accommodate this. To be fully able to support busy healthcare professionals, workshops may often be booked with short notice, so flexibility to travel and attend will be required
