The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow is pleased to announce a provisional programme for the Safety and Sustainability in Rural General Surgery Conference on 30 November and the morning of 1 December 2017. This conference will bring together many of Scotland’s current surgical trainees with a long-established network of remote and rural surgeons, the Viking Surgeons’ Club, in an exciting and unique event.
The conference will explore the current reality of Scottish rural surgical service provision, discuss the international remote healthcare experience, and offer updates into the management of surgical subspecialty emergencies in a rural context. We welcome delegates from around the world who have an interest in rural healthcare and the challenges therein.
