Current Awareness Service

The Current Awareness Service (CAS) was developed based on RCS Members’ feedback. Email updates of the latest evidence in a particular surgical field were compiled by the CAS team in the RCS Library with the help of clinical advisors from each of the specialties. Selected article citations, guidelines and news items were sorted by topic within a given specialty, which allowed highly specialised consultants to focus on their chosen subspecialty. Most citations featured a helpful brief summary and link directly to the full text of the article, where covered by the College’s numerous subscriptions to e-journals.

The Current Awareness Service will return in early summer 2017. We’ve been reviewing the Service to ensure that we provide the best product to meet your needs. We’ve been listening to your ideas and will be relaunching the Service based on your feedback.

As part of the review, we have been planning to roll-out the Service to all ten surgical specialties, to ensure all Members and Fellows have access to this membership benefit.

More information about the relaunch of the Service will be announced here shortly.

To ensure you receive the right Current Awareness Updates for your specialty, please follow these brief instructions to update your RCS account preferences.
