O&G: the RCOG’s membership magazine

O&G is the membership magazine of the RCOG

Its aim is to keep our members and trainees up to date in the latest developments in women's healthcare.

The focus of O&G is to raise awareness and tackle workforce issues, as well as to provide support resources and information to aid your daily practice and ongoing professional development.
