Royal College of Surgeons of England
With 4.2 million surgical operations carried out every year in England alone our aim to maintain and advance surgical standards in patient care has never been so important. Some operations are minor, while others are life-saving or will dramatically enhance the quality of life. In every case, the patient places their trust in the hands of the surgeon.
As a registered charity (No 212808), independent of the NHS, the College relies heavily on charitable support to fund the development of these activities. Legacies and donations from grant-giving trusts, companies and individuals provide an essential source of income and allow us to fund important new projects and initiatives.
The College continues to sustain and improve surgical standards throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our training, education and The College is very grateful to all of our charitable donors and sponsors, as without their continued support this work would not be possible.
