Over the past two decades, the prestigious Silver Scalpel Award has played a vital part in recognising trainers that go the extra mile for their trainees and promote the highest standards of surgical training.
At a time of constant flux in the NHS, with training increasingly squeezed by demands on service, it is more important than ever that we recognise and reward good trainers. Training goes hand in hand with providing excellent patient care, and Silver Scalpel winners also deliver an exemplary service to their patients, creating a positive clinical environment and learning culture for trainees.
ASiT is grateful to Swann-Morton who continue to support this prestigious award with the Swann-Morton Silver Scalpel trophy.
ASiT is delighted to announce the winners of the 2021 awards:
Silver Scalpel Award: Ms Manjit Dhillon, Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, NHS Grampian, Aberdeen
Silver Suture Award (Joint Winners): Mr Umar Wali and Mr Tom Lewis
