Over the past decade the prestigious Silver Scalpel Award has played a vital part in recognising trainers that go the extra mile for their trainees, while at the same time promoting 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.
Good training goes hand in hand with providing excellent patient care, and Silver Scalpel winners also deliver an exemplary service to their patients by creating a positive clinical environment and learning culture for trainees.
ASiT are delighted to announce that the winner of the 2019 Silver Scalpel Award was Mr Edmund Leung, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, County Hospital Hereford.
ASiT are grateful to Swann-Morton who continue to support this prestigious award with Swann-Morton Silver Scalpel trophy.
