Delighted to receive this prestigious award, Dr Manderson said, “It is an honour indeed to be President of the Ulster Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society for the next 12 months.  This is an intergenerational society formed in 1952 which meets four times per year.

“Our most recent meeting had an excellent range of speakers including Trust Chief Executive, Roisin Coulter who talked about health transformation and the need to ‘Reflect Refocus and Renew’.

“The Presidential Address focuses on a non-academic specialty topic so given my interest in cycling and sport, my talk was entitled ‘Catch Me If You Can – From Elixirs to Epo and Beyond’ where I discussed the issue of doping and detection in sport.

“I am very much looking forward to the next 12 months as President and to further the Society’s mission of advancing healthcare for women in Northern Ireland.”
