Guidelines

The RCOG produces guidelines as an aid to good clinical practice. Our guidelines present recognised methods and techniques for clinical practice, based on published evidence, for consideration by obstetricians/gynaecologists and other relevant health professionals. Find out more about the different types of guideline we publish.

All guidelines on this website are current and remain so until replaced. Find out how to access previous versions of guidelines.

You can browse all of our guidelines below, or search for guidelines by type, by subject or by keyword.

We also publish a range of patient information leaflets.
