RGOG: Providing Quality Care for Women: Obstetrics and Gynaecology Workforce

The recommendations take account of the significant variation in service provision around the country in terms of workload complexity, geography and current middle-grade staffing. Therefore, the report recognises that there is no single solution to delivering safe maternity and gynaecological services.

The report specifically looks at the need for some degree of resident consultant working as a solution to workforce issues and recommends the use of hybrid rotas, which include both resident and non-resident out-of-hours shifts.

The report also includes case studies demonstrating how this model is working in practice across the country, and proposes RCOG standards for consultant job descriptions and job plans to support the recommendations.
