The latest issue of our membership magazine looks at plans to increase the NHS retirement age.
Proposals to reform the NHS pension scheme have generated much debate about the effect on individual retirement plans. But what would the implications be for patient safety and occupational health with surgeons and anaesthetists working in acute specialties until 68?
In the current issue, our cover feature considers the possible effects of increasing the retirement age, on consultants and their patients. Our contributors highlight the importance of this pressing issue and outline how the profession might adapt to accommodate its aging workforce.
Other features include an interview with Michigan's Dr John Birkmeyer on surgical outcomes and we mark the tenth anniversary of The Surgeon: Journal of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Edinburgh and Ireland.
Plus, we have the regular news, events and professional updates from the RCSEd.
