Scope and content/abstract:

This series contains quarterly newsletters; there are only two for 1999 when the newsletter was discontinued. The newsletter gave details about College activites, working party reports and information about the Membership examination. It also listed College appointments, and meetings and courses that might have been of interest to trainees available at the RCOG and externally. A large quantity of circulars were distributed with each newsletter, advertising meetings, RCOG publications and Trainees Committee issues. In addition press releases, working party reports and RCOG guidelines were included in the mailing.
