Scope and Content

Records of the Joint Training Committee of the RCOG and the Faculty of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care, comprising agenda, circulated papers and minutes of meetings.

Administrative / Biographical History

In 2001 the RCOG and the Faculty of Family Planning and Reproductive Health issued a joint statement outlining the need to further develop community gynaecology. A joint working group was formed which reported in 2001. The main recommendations were that the name of the subspecialty should be changed from Consultant in Community Gynaecology to Consultant in Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH); that a Joint Committee of the Faculty and the College should be set up as a separate committee and not as a subcommittee of the Subspecialty Committee. The Committee was to:

report directly to the Standards Board of the RCOG and the Higher Training Committee of the Faculty

be responsible for Additional Training and Special Skills modules relating to SRH

be responsible for improvements and changes in the modular log book for SRH
