The Regional Ultrasound Group (RUG) was originally
set up in 1992 following the appointment of Martin Whittle
as the First Professor of Fetal Medicine. Mike Wyldes
and Ralph Settatree had been working with sonographers
following recommendations from the Regional Perinatal
Audit; this was formalised into a multidisciplinary
group. The RUG provides a professional network, which
has aided the implementation of important changes across
the West Midlands.
Composition & Role
The RUG comprises sonographers and obstetricians with
representatives from maternity units in the West
Midlands along with representatives of key services
in the region. It is administered and supported by the
West Midlands Perinatal Institute.
The work of the RUG includes the setting of obstetric
ultrasound standards, addressing training issues, implementation
of antenatal screening policy and service provision
throughout the West Midlands.
