Consultant, Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (2001-date) Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH)

Honorary Senior Lecturer, University of East Anglia (2003-date)

Vice President, Clinical Quality, RCOG (2016-date)

Mr Eddy Morris has worked for most of his career as an obstetrician and gynaecologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

He was initially employed to support the urogynaecology service but over time developed advanced skills in minimally invasive gynaecology. He spent seven years as a clinical director, leading a complete transformation and expansion of the maternity service, during which he gained a real understanding of the challenges that prevent front-line clinicians from delivering the care they want to.

His interest in the menopause led to him setting up a specialist menopause clinic, and later to Chairmanship of the British Menopause Society. In 2014 he set up an endometriosis centre and this endometriosis centre now forms the main focus of his clinical work.

He was elected as the inaugural chair of the Safety and Quality Committee at the RCOG in 2009 and completed a 4 year tenure in 2013. He has been an active participant of the RCOG Clinical Quality Board for 9 years and is currently Vice President, Clinical Quality, RCOG.

In his role as Vice President he has overseen the success of the Each Baby Counts Project, The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit, and an OASI project amongst others. He has also overseen the publication of 15 new green-top clinical guidelines, which remain the gold standard for O&G guidelines worldwide.
