Faculty of Perioperative Care

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) established the Faculty of Perioperative Care in recognition of the evolving and increasingly important role that Surgical Care Practitioners (SCPs) and Surgical First Assistants (SFAs) play as part of the wider surgical team in delivering safe surgical care to patients.

The Faculty is available to all perioperative practitioners, including trainees, such as: Surgical Care Practitioners; Surgical First Assistants; and all those with similar titles involved in the delivery of high quality surgical care.

The Faculty has been established to recognise the increasingly important role played by all these individuals and offers many benefits to its membership. RCSEd has an international reputation for delivering education, training and setting of standards.
