RCS Patient Information

The Royal College of Surgeons' Patient Liaison Group (PLG) has produced an information guide for patients called Having An Operation?, which is available to download. It is designed to help you think about what an operation might mean for you and the questions to ask.

You can find other information produced by the RCS Publications Department and on the College's electronic library.

Many more specific guidelines are produced by the surgical specialty associations.

If you have any suggestions about patient information that we have not included here, please contact the College's Communications Department at
