Future Surgery Virtual 2020
The exclusively online event aims to bring together both surgeons and the wider surgical community with a programme of informative, educational and inspirational content that serves to encourage discussion, networking and professional development across the mix of surgical roles and specialties.

The two-day online event will be attended by surgical, perioperative and purchasing teams. Attendees will be able to access a comprehensive educational programme while networking with peers and suppliers.

Themes covered will include: Disruptive Tech, Innovation in Surgery, Working and Training, Human Factors, Perioperative Care, Patient Safety, Sustainability, Diversity in Surgery and The Patient and HCP Experience.
The project is supported by the Surgical Royal Colleges of Edinburgh, Ireland and Glasgow, the FSSA, RCN, CODP, AfPP & NIHR and will bring together hundreds of surgical professionals across two days of online education and networking.

‘Surgical teams have been adapting to radically different circumstances over the past few months, and our conference is necessarily adapting too. Working with CloserStill, we are able to bring this event online as a fantastic opportunity for our members and fellows to hear about new technology and research, and to network with their peers.’
Andrew Reed, Chief Executive of the Royal College of Surgeons of England
