This is who we are

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow is a community of health professionals working together to develop and improve patient care. We are proud to be the only Royal College in the UK that welcomes members from around the world within every medical specialty.

Members of the College have access to a range of opportunities and resources to support career progression through foundation year, core, specialty training and beyond.

The cost of medical training is of great concern to the College and we are looking at ways of reducing these costs. We are proud to offer the lowest surgical membership fees of any Royal College in the UK – more than 50% lower than Edinburgh and England.

Join our community today to add your voice and deliver positive progress for the healthcare profession. We are on your side.

What matters to me? Professional fulfilment and the feeling of satisfaction at the end of a working day when my actions have positively impacted on my patients and colleagues, promoting organ donation and improving access to transplantation, and creating a happy and calm home for my family and ensuring a work/life balance where there is equity between different aspects of my life.

Promoting Safer Surgery

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow supports the Confidential Reporting System for Surgery (CORESS). CORESS was created to share lessons learnt from unexpected and adverse incidents in surgical practice. It aims to complement the activities of existing statutory, professional and organisational measures for the protection of the public by providing individual feedback to surgeons and communicate lessons learned to the surgical community in general.

Any surgeon, surgical trainee or member of the wider surgical team can submit a report, in confidence, to CORESS. Reports may concern any safety-related incident involving the reporter, other people, a hospital or other organisations that the reporter deals with. Incidents may be diagnostic or operative errors, technical or maintenance failures, regulatory or procedural aspects or unsafe practices and/or protocols. For more information please use the link below.
