I am Professor in Midwifery and was until last June President of the Royal College of Midwives. I have undertaken extensive national and international work in midwifery.
I worked with Paul when he was at the John Radcliffe in Oxford in the early 1990s. He was a committed and responsible member of staff who helped me lead a high-quality service with his commitment to improvement and ability to speak honestly and diplomatically.
Since then I have followed his career with interest and have often heard others who have worked with him describe his energetic and creative approach.
You will see from his CV the depth of his clinical experience and lecturing work. I note also his legal expertise and qualification, this is distinctive and important.
Paul is renowned internationally as a leader.

Paul is one of the most dynamic and driven people that I know. He is passionate about both midwifery and medical / legal ethical issues. His enthusiasm is infectious, and I feel lucky to count him as a friend. I would consider it a privilege to have Paul as a midwife. He is intuitive, knowledgeable and meticulous. I’m proud to highly recommended Paul Golden.”

“I have known Paul for 10+ years and have found him extremely diligent, hard working and charming. We first came into contact with Paul through his midwife services, and he has remained a friend and trusted advisor since.”

I’m glad that you are still working in this field [of advocacy] as your bent for it combined with your integrity is a powerful force. I wish I had you with me instead of [my union] … you were 1000% better.
