Annual Report published
Our Annual Report and Accounts 2022-23 has been published, outlining what our College has achieved against our strategic aims and objectives in the last financial year.
Tim Mitchell, RCS England President, wrote in his foreword:
“I am in no doubt that the environment our members, and particularly surgical trainees, are working in right now is very challenging. With much uncertainty, a heavy cloud hangs over the UK’s health services. However, I hope our annual review will give cause for hope. It is a snapshot of the excellent work that our members, fellows, and staff are doing to improve surgery and the lives of surgeons, so that we can continue to provide our patients with the best possible care.”
The report outlines what we have achieved based on our strategic aims, among our highlights:
- raising more than £4.9m for surgical research and learning;
- awarding 29 research fellowships, including a new robotics fellowship and two fellowships in diversity, equity and inclusion in surgery;
- delivering training to 9,077 participants on 765 courses thanks to our 4,000+ faculty members;
- hosting more than 2,300 attendees on the first-ever ‘Surgical Voices from the Global South’ webinar series, led by the College’s Humanitarian Surgery Innovation Fellows;
- celebrating the 40th anniversary of our College journal, The Bulletin.
We also made advancements in key areas of our diversity initiatives, including:
- taking forward actions from our Parents in Surgery report;
- launching our Specialty and Associate Specialist (SAS) strategy;
- releasing our report on Differential Attainment in MRCS exams;
- awarding £35,000 of funding to seven Grassroots in Surgery projects.
