Chief Executive of the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), Cathy Warwick, has announced that she will retire in August 2017.
Cathy has been the Chief Executive of the RCM since 2008.
During her time in this position, she has consistently championed real choice for pregnant women and the need for high quality and safer maternity services.
In her recent work, Cathy contributed to the Government’s Better Births Maternity Transformation Programme in England.
“I have absolutely loved my time at the RCM. It has been a privilege to work with all of our wonderful members and to do everything we can together to ensure women and their babies get the best possible care.
The RCM is a great organisation and I will be very sad when I leave. I feel very sure that the next CEO will take the RCM on to even better things,” she said.
The RCM will now begin the process of finding a new CEO.
Cathy will be working with the organisation’s Board to provide a smooth transition for the next CEO.
MIDIRS would like to wish Cathy Warwick all the best for the future in her retirement.
