    About

    Dr Alison Wright is Vice President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. She works at the Royal Free Hospital in the  NHS and as private consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at the Portland Hospital

    She is a firm believer in her patients making informed choices. It goes without saying that her belief in this is backed by a desire to continually provide detailed and comprehensive information to patients and their families. To this extent, she enjoys talking to women about women's issues and has been involved in the NHS London maternity services improvement board and maternity project, alongside being co-chair of the user engagement group. This project is now in it's implementation phase and is something of huge importance to her.

    Beyond her medical interests, Dr Wright spent a year in India co-ordinating a safe motherhood project in rural areas. She worked in the slums of Calcutta with inspirational people, not least of whom was Mother Teresa. She found this experience hugely rewarding and has subsequently taken part in further pursuits of magnanimity. She later co-chaired for the Maternity Services Liason Committee with an inspirational NCT teacher, working together to improve women's experiences, including stopping asylum seekers being billed for their maternity care, changing the policy on automatic continuous electronic fetal heart monitoring and promoting an active birth rooms with birthing balls.

    Of course, delivering babies is and will remain of special importance to Dr Wright. Alongside this, changing women's lives with operations has tremendous positive consequences, especially when women then tell her that they can "lead normal lives again including things like staying over with family or friends, playing with the kids or ballroom dancing, which their bladder problem has prevented them from doing.”

    Having worked and travelled extensively around the world, Dr Wright is also conscious and embracing of the importance of respecting different cultures.

    In her pursuit of continually providing first-rate care, Dr Wright continues to cultivate her medical interests outside of her clinical work. In such a manner, she has presented nationally and internationally at meetings on topics such as childbirth trauma, HIV in pregnancy, methods of induction of labour and patient satisfaction following surgery for incontinence. This is a constituent part of her desire to remain involved with the latest developments in women's health and surgery.
