The COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented challenges for the surgical workforce and one that has raised many questions on surgical care and safety which need urgent answers. In order to meet these challenges, we have launched the RCS COVID Research Group.
This working group brings together the COVID-specific projects supported by the College, in order to share ideas, collaborate and support the research activity being carried out. The group aims include assisting in study design and recruitment, and the identification of funding opportunities.
In addition to surgery specific projects we endorse and support the three national studies as documented by the letter from the Chief Medical Officers.
The RCS COVID Research Group is currently formed of the projects listed below. Please consider supporting these projects and sharing details with your network and colleagues. If you have ideas for new studies we would be delighted to hear from you.
