For midwifery practitioners, the concept of excellence is central to the ethos of quality midwifery care (DH 2009, NMC 2009) and although midwives are being asked to aspire to ‘a standard of excellence’ (DH 2009), the meaning of ‘excellence’ for both women and midwifery practitioners has not been defined. The focus of this study is to understand excellence at a personal level, what makes some midwives ‘stand out’ and what it means to ‘be’ an excellent midwife, from the service users perspective.
