A Living Legacy

Supporting RCSEd: Leaving a Gift to the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

A day at work for a surgeon can be a lot of things: saving a life, curing insufferable pain, consoling a patient at their lowest and smiling with them at their happiest. It can be giving good news and bad news, offering hope to loved ones, feeling the weight of that responsibility and then going above and beyond to deliver time and again. 

Leaving a gift in your Will to the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh will provide the crucial support surgeons need to transform lives in every corner of the world every minute of the day. We offer research opportunities to gifted surgeons with the vision and drive to transform lives.  We help surgeons reach international standards so that patients across the world can expect exceptional care irrespective of borders. We provide critical support to countries where insufficient resources are stretched beyond breaking point. We curate surgery’s proud heritage in the UK’s largest medical museum.
