Message of support from the RCOG Women’s Network

The RCOG Women’s Network would like to thank all the Fellows, Members, Trainees and Associates who are working so hard and showing such dedication during this challenging time. 

We have never been so proud of the Obstetricians and Gynaecologists we work with at the RCOG and of their colleagues in maternity services and throughout the NHS. We are so grateful for all that you are doing, and for the commitment, care and professionalism that you are showing.

Day after day, night after night, you are there working tirelessly to care for your patients and your job has never been harder than at present with the system stretched in ways we could never have imagined by the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate that you are facing many extra responsibilities and that the burden of work has never been heavier, and we wanted you all to know how much what you are doing is appreciated.

As a society we need to ensure that you are properly cared for yourselves, that you have the equipment you need and support for your own wellbeing when you are facing unprecedented demands on a daily basis. We need to cherish those who devote their lives caring for the rest of us, and we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

The RCOG Women’s Network
