History of the Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics

The Centre was established in September 2014 in memory of Lindsay Stewart. Lindsay Stewart was a generous benefactor who made a significant financial donation to the College in 2010.


The Office for Research and Clinical Audit (ORCA) was established to carry out audit and research at the College. ORCA was an academic partnership between the RCOG and the Department of Health Services Research and Policy at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

2006 – 2014

ORCA completed a number of large-scale and national projects and successfully bid for funding from organisations including the Health Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), the Academy of Royal Medical Colleges, and the UK National Screening Committee.

September 2014

Building on this solid foundation, in September 2014 the Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics replaced ORCA following a generous donation by Lindsay Stewart in 2010. The use of his name acknowledges his wish to support the College’s research and development activities.
