Surgeons who are the subject of our cases

Factsheet resource

In March 2021, the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) published An independent review on diversity and inclusion for the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Much of the report looks at diversity in relation to the structure of the RCS but it also explores issues around diversity in surgeons more widely.

We have taken this opportunity to review some of the information we hold on cases discussed with us which relate to surgeons to understand if similar issues highlighted in the RCS report are apparent in our cases and are relevant to the services we offer to help employers and practitioners to resolve concerns about individuals’ performance where they arise. These cases relate to surgeons of any grade working or training in a surgical specialty.
