Peter Huntingford Memorial Prize

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service has very generously endowed the Peter Huntingford Memorial Prize to mark the late Professor Peter Huntingford’s contribution to obstetrics and gynaecology. This has enabled the RCOG to provide two prizes of £150 (first prize) and £75 (second prize).
