TOG release: A new Editor in Chief for The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist

The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist (TOG) is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Editor in Chief, Jason Waugh.

Jason Waugh is currently a consultant in obstetrics and maternal medicine and the lead for obstetric medicine in Newcastle, having previously worked in Leicester for 5 years as a consultant in obstetric medicine. He is the Northern Deanery lead for training in maternal medicine and President of the Macdonald UK Obstetric Medicine Society. He also has a translational research programme around hypertension and thromboembolic disease in pregnancy. He has been a member of the Editorial Board of The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist for the past 3 years and he has recently edited his first book on Maternal Medicine for Midwives.

Jason Waugh said “I have a strong desire to see TOG flourish while retaining its charm and appeal to members at all stages in their careers. TOG’s role over the forthcoming years is likely to expand, with a significant contribution to make towards recertification.

“I want to ensure that, while we maintain the high quality of review articles with a diversity to satisfy all clinicians, we also develop new areas, such as the electronic journal, our links with the international members of the Editorial Board and the diversity of the articles we commission. This may well involve expanding the journal into a more frequent publication or adding in themed supplementary editions around special interest topics.”

“I hope I can continue in the footsteps of my predecessors and see TOG remain essential reading for all, from trainees to Fellows.”
