Could you help represent patient views to specialists? Are you interested in a demanding but rewarding voluntary role? The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ Women’s Network is currently recruiting two new lay members.
What is the Women’s Network?
The Network is a group of 14 lay volunteers (and three clinical representatives) whose experience of services as patients helps the College to better understand the needs of women.
Unlike the RCOG’s Women’s Voices Involvement Panel – which is a virtual group – the Women’s Network meets in person four times a year. Members also sit on other College committees and boards on areas such as; education and training of doctors; the development of clinical guidelines; and the implementation and monitoring of clinical audits. The Network also has its own body of work, leading on projects around particular areas it feels are important to women.
How to apply for the RCOG Women’s Network
The College would welcome applicants from a wide range of women from all corners of the UK. You can find more information on the role and details of how to apply here. The closing date for applications is midnight on Sunday 31st May.
