Thursday 30 November has been approved as a training day for Scottish trainees, with no registration fee.
This conference will run over a full day on Thursday 30 November and the morning of Friday 1 December. Trainees are invited to join on Thursday 30 November, at no charge, and must book their place online or by phone. All other delegate fees cover both 30 November and 1 December.
Scotland’s territory encompasses some of the least densely populated mainland areas in Europe and approximately 100,000 people live on a variety of island archipelagos. Scotland’s healthcare system accommodates six Rural General Hospitals which provide a full surgical service to these remote and rural populations. The constraints of geography and the needs of these populations dictate that local provision of surgical services will continue to be required for the foreseeable future. Capable surgical generalists are needed to provide this capacity, and they require an extended range of skills, excellent clinical judgment and a supportive professional network.
This conference will bring together many of Scotland’s current surgical trainees with a long-established network of remote and rural surgeons, the Viking Surgeons’ Club. The conference will explore the current reality of Scottish rural surgical service provision and offer updates into the management of surgical subspecialty emergencies.
Opportunities for networking and further discussion will be enhanced through the post-conference dinner on Thursday 30 November. We hope you will join us there for an evening of friendship, networking and first-class dining from the College's award-winning chef, Richie Holmes. Partners of event delegates are also most welcome. Reservations for the dinner can made by contacting 1599 at the Royal College on 0845 388 1599.Dinner is £30 per person.
Please note that dinner reservations can be made up until Thursday 23 November, at which time we will be unable to accept further bookings.
