The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) have announced today they will be relocating later this year to a new headquarters in London Bridge, joining the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare on one site.
Dr Edward Morris, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said:
“As we recognise and celebrate International Year of the Nurse and Midwife this year, the RCM’s move will bring fresh opportunities for us to combine our expertise and collaborate further to develop our shared aims. We will build on our existing joint programmes, such as One Voice - championing high-quality care for women, and their families, throughout pregnancy, birth and post-natal care.
“When the RCOG moved to Union Street in November 2019, our vision was to create a modern, global hub for improving the health of women and girls – by opening our doors to partners and global members, so we can better collaborate to drive forward our shared aims.
“We very much look forward to welcoming the RCM when they move into Union Street later this year. Our partnerships will undoubtedly grow from strength to strength, as we drive forward our mission to further improve the health of women and girls, both here in the UK and globally.”
Speaking of the move, RCM Chief Executive Gill Walton said:
“This is an exciting step for the RCM and a real investment in our future. The new headquarters will allow us to work more effectively across the College, providing even better, more timely support for our members. Sharing an address with other organisations not only speaks to our ongoing work to develop better collaboration and partnership, it is also an opportunity to create a centre of excellence for women’s health.
“While we will be sad to leave the famous blue door at Mansfield Street behind, the ethos and spirit that it engenders remains strong across the RCM.”
