Improving Surgical Training — Royal College of Surgeons

The pilot will trial improvements in the quality of training, a better balance between service and training for trainees, professionalisation of the role of trainers and look to develop members of the team from other professional backgrounds to work alongside surgical trainees to improve patient care.
