We’re delighted that our CEO Jane Plumb has been appointed the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’s honorary Women’s Voices Lead.
The RCOG’s Women’s Voices Lead is an honorary lay role responsible for ensuring the views and experiences of those who use obstetric and gynaecology services are heard, leading the College’s Women’s Voices Involvement Panel and influencing the College’s patient and public involvement agenda.
On her appointment, Jane said:
“I’m delighted to be appointed as the RCOG’s Women’s Voices Lead and look forward to building on Baroness Gohir’s and Kate Brian’s legacies in this role.
“I’ve long admired the College’s impressive commitment to keeping those who use obstetrics and gynaecology services at the heart of what they do. Through both personal and professional experience, I know just how crucial it is that service users shape decision-making at every level.
“With 25 years at Group B Strep Support championing the needs of those whose voices and experiences too often go unheard, I’m excited to help shape inclusive, accessible O&G services that reflect the diversity of those who use it.”Jane Plumb

I look forward to working with Jane on a number of projects across the college to help improve the experiences of those accessing care.”Dr Ranee Thakar, President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
