About the RCOG Women’s Network

The Women’s Network is a strategic RCOG committee. There are 14 core lay members and 4 clinicians from across the UK on the Network which meets 4 times a year. All lay members have personal experience of obstetrics or gynaecological services. They inform the College about issues affecting women during pregnancy, labour and birth, around fertility and gynaecological conditions through to the menopause and women’s health in later life.

Members represent the Network across a wide range of RCOG activities, ensuring the service user perspective is at the heart of RCOG discussions and decision making. Selected for their broad expertise and passion for women’s health, Network member help the College with the development of guidelines, patient information, training and education, continuing professional development, audit and quality improvement and policy. They also bring insight into the College on current and emerging issues in women’s health which may need consideration and action, and lead their own projects.

The Women’s Network is supported by the broader Women's Voices Involvement Panel – an online group of over 600 O&G service users. The panel brings a breadth of health experiences and outcomes from the wider women’s health community to inform the Network’s involvement in College activities.
