Policy and Consultations

Policy development and consultation

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) regularly responds to consultations from the UK Government, devolved parliaments and assemblies, the NHS and other medical organisations.

In order to develop its responses we consult widely with our dedicated Policy Group made up of College Fellows, professional advisers and lay representatives. In addition, the College regularly consults with our Trainees' Committee, Lay Advisory Group, Younger Fellows Network, Regional Adviser Network and our membership throughout the UK.
