Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new programme of Surgical Grand Rounds to provide a learning environment for all levels of surgical staff, from trainees to consultants, of all specialties.

RCSEd President Mr Ian Ritchie was the guest of honour at the inaugural meeting at Manchester’s Postgraduate Centre in April (pictured).

Consultant Transplant Surgeon Tunde Campbell, who is also the Lead for Postgraduate Education in Surgery, said:  “The Surgical Grand Rounds are an exciting development for our Trust.  They present an opportunity to celebrate surgical innovations, bring surgical specialties across the organisation together, and also provide a learning environment for medical students.  We encourage our surgical colleagues to get involved in this new venture.”

Mr Ritchie said:  “The College welcomes, and is very supportive of, this important initiative.  It provides an excellent opportunity for colleagues at Central Manchester University Hospitals to discuss the whole range of surgery and will be a valuable learning environment.  It will also be an effective way to maintain contact with other surgical colleagues across the organisation.”

The April meeting started with a talk from Mr Ritchie on training tomorrow’s surgeons, followed by a presentation on new horizons in facial reconstruction and reanimation from Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgeon Kartic Rajaram.
