New editor for SA Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology



Dr William Edridge, FCOG (SA), MRCOG (UK), MBBChir (Cantab), a long-time consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital and lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, has taken up the editorship of SAJOG.

Born in Sussex, England, in 1960 and educated at Tonbridge School and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, Edridge originally studied history at Cambridge University, but after a year decided to change to medicine. Leaving Cambridge to re-matriculate in science subjects, he returned the following year. After moving to Liverpool to work in casualty and play for 'a particular rugby club', he then went to Newcastle to start training in obstetrics and gynaecology, which he was completing at the Royal Free Hospital in London when he came to Johannesburg on a one-year exchange in 1998. He never returned to the UK, and has been a consultant at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, attached to the University of the Witwatersrand, for the past 14 years.

Edridge lists his interests as oncology, endoscopy, anything in obstetrics and gynaecology, 'and anything that's not quite true'.
