The RCOG's patient information leaflets are designed for you and others interested or involved in your care. All the information comes from up-to-date and carefully checked guidance for doctors, but it's been written in a way that makes it clearer for the non-medical person. Find out more about how this information is produced.
If you are looking for information about recovery after a surgical procedure, read our Recovering Well leaflets.
We welcome feedback on our patient information leaflets from members of the public and health professionals. Please email us with your comments.
The RCOG is occasionally asked by external organisations to endorse or support their documents or policies in which the RCOG has had no involvement. This policy document sets out the criteria that will be applied in processing requests for endorsement or support.
The RCOG produces briefings and Q&As for the public based on topical scientific papers written for clinicians. To read our key messages on the RCOG Ethics Committee paper on female genital cosmetic surgery, please click here.
