The Confederation for British Surgery (CBS) is an official trade union for the whole surgical team and is run by practicing surgeons. CBS seeks to work in partnership with all stakeholders in surgery to improve the working lives of the whole surgical team and has the advantage of being able to provide members of the surgical community access to additional support and resources that the Specialty Associations and Colleges cannot offer due to their charitable status.
Surgical practice is very different in nature and environment to other areas of medical and health service practice, and beyond the comprehension of many. Surgeons and Anaesthetists together constitute a small minority of medical practitioners in both Primary and Secondary Care in the UK, and the priorities of both the BMA and HCSA (and MDO’s) understandably reflect this, which is why CBS is here to help ensure surgery is fit for the future.
