As we face the effects of COVID-19 across the world, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is determined to keep both our Members and the public up to date with the latest developments and information to aid those working in such difficult circumstances.

Our COVID-19 webinar series will draw upon the front line experience of senior clinicians from across multiple disciplines, and help answer those questions you have with special Q&A sessions.

Each webinar will be broadcast live on Zoom and available to anyone who would like to register, with a recording of the full session available for public access the next day.
