Global Appeal 2023 - Fill in the GAPS - Global Access to Paediatric Surgery
The Royal College of Surgeons of England belongs to a worldwide community of surgeons. Together we strive to improve, learn, share and build for our patients. They are the beginning and end of everything we do.
In January 2023, we launched our appeal supporting Global Access to Paediatric Surgery. We start with our partners in Zimbabwe, where an estimated 300,000 children have surgically treatable conditions and yet there are only two surgeons for every 100,000 people.
Please consider making a donation to our Global Appeal. We have a target of £10,000* which will create a new paediatric orthopaedic course. Bringing trainees together from across Zimbabwe to learn essential and advanced skills in this much-needed treatment for children.

A wonderful legacy from Mr Bryn T Williams FRCS
On 23 March we welcomed the family of late cardiothoracic surgeon Mr Bryn T Williams FRCS to the College. Mr Williams generously gifted a bronze sculpture of his hands to the FDS in his will. The sculptor, Neil Lawson Baker was a dental surgeon who changed career after 40 years of practice. The unique piece was presented to FDS Registrar, Hazel Johnstone, following a tour of the transformed College building. The new bespoke bookcase in the Research Room of the College Library also received support from Mr Williams’ legacy.
