There are many reasons why you may find yourself under the care of a surgeon;
few people have not benefited, either directly or indirectly, from advances made in
surgery. Almost five million surgical patients are admitted to hospital every year in England alone for procedures ranging from straightforward gallbladder removal and joint replacements, to complex transplants and emergency trauma repair.
The Royal College of Surgeons of England safeguards the experience, treatment and outcomes of the UK’s surgical patients through the ongoing state-of-the-art training of our surgeons and pioneering research.
Research at RCS England relies almost exclusively on legacies, gifts and donations. We need your help if this work is to continue and flourish. Making a will is a significant personal responsibility and the people and causes you remember in your will are a positive recognition of all that is important to you.
We understand that the welfare and concern for your family and friends comes first. Just as a will brings security to those closest to you, a legacy to the Royal College of Surgeons of England will play a crucial role in maintaining and improving the surgical care for patients.
