Royal College of Surgeons of England
With 4.2 million surgical operations carried out every year in England alone, The Royal College of Surgeons aims to maintain and advance surgical standards in patient care. Some operations are minor, while others are life-saving or will dramatically enhance the quality of life.
In every case, the patient places their trust in the hands of the surgeon. A registered charity, independent of the NHS, the College is reliant on donations and legacies to develop and maintain its varied programme of clinical research, surgical education and training programmes. Today’s surgeons perform operations barely dreamt of by their predecessors.
