Research: The attitudes of midwives towards the use of NHS maternity care by international migrants
By PhD Student at the University of West of England, Ella Barclay on 30 June 2022
My name is Ella Barclay (BA, MSc) and I am a student at the University of West of England (UWE) working towards my PhD in Sociology.
This research constitutes the data for my MRes thesis, and feeds into my broader research topic of the importance and inaccessibility of sexual and reproductive rights for undocumented migrants in the UK.
This study is concerned with the attitudes of midwives towards the use of NHS maternity care by international migrants and the current policies concerning charging and sharing the data of non-citizens.

All responses will be anonymous.
