Obstetrics and Gynaecology

All the jobs include both obstetrics and gynaecology.

The Obstetrics Department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital is a busy unit with about 6,000 deliveries a year. The post offers excellent experience in all areas of obstetrics from high risk to normal midwifery cases. Most registrars take and pass the DRCOG. We run hands on emergency study days and GP update meetings twice yearly. In the Gynaecology department, there is a dedicated daily emergency clinic which provides good experience of all areas of emergency gynaecology. Outpatient clinic and theatre work provide useful exposure to elective gynaecology. You could attend a family planning course during study leave. There are dedicated weekly teaching sessions. There are 10 doctors at SHO grade who participate in the full shift on call rota.
