Equality and Diversity Policy

The Joint Surgical Committee Meeting’s Equality and Diversity policy has been developed for the United Kingdom and Ireland Surgical Royal Colleges (the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd), the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCSEng), the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (RCPSGlas) and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) (The Colleges). The Colleges work together on matters relating to standards and assessment, through a number of intercollegiate committees including the Intercollegiate Committee for Basic Surgical Examinations.

It is the aim of The Committees to ensure that, where it falls within their sphere of influence, no interested party receives less favourable facilities or treatment (either directly or indirectly) in recruitment, employment, assessment or examination on grounds of age, disability, gender / gender reassignment, marriage / civil partnership, pregnancy / maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.
