Royal College of Surgeons of England

Following a fantastic response, the Reconstructive Surgery Trials Day is now FULLY BOOKED. We are trying to secure more places and so you can still register to join the waiting list. Use the booking form below to sign-up.

The day is aimed at any level of clinician interested in or involved in clinical trials, from undergraduate to consultant. The afternoon includes FREE Good Clinical Practice training.

Everyone involved in the conduct of clinical research must complete GCP training so that they are prepared for their duties. This is stated in the Research Governance Framework for Health and Social Care 2005. Being involved in clinical research and trials is increasingly seen as a core part of training and vital to practice as an NHS consultant.

Certificates will be issued for both attendance and for the Good Clinical Practice training. 

 Accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England for up to five CPD points

How to find the RCS and transport details are available here.
