Scope and Content

Papers of the Joint Working Party to consider a proposed Faculty of Family Planning (later the Faculty of Family Planning Steering Group), 1984-1990, containing Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists copies of the working party's minutes, papers and correspondence, and including correspondence with Hempsons, Solicitors (1990), and the final draft of the report 'Proposed Faculty of Family Planning of the RCOG and RCGP' (October 1990).

Administrative / Biographical History

The joint working party to consider a proposed Faculty of Family Planning arose out of discussions between the National Association of Family Planning Doctors and the Joint Committee on Contraception of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP)(normally referred to as the Joint Committee on Contraception). The first meeting was held in November 1987. Initially it was expected that a joint RCOG/RCGP Faculty would be established; in 1991, however, the RCGP withdrew and the RCOG finally set up a Faculty of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care (FFPRHC) within the College in 1993. In 1998 the FFPRHC withdrew from the College to its own premises.
