It has become clear to me over the last few weeks that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organisations and charities that I am proud to support.
Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from my membership of ‘Gynecologist Without Diplomas’ for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission.
I strongly feel it is the honorable thing to do, although it saddens me to abandon this great organisation with such an esteemed body of members.
