What should I know about surgery in the UK? 

As you would expect with such a large medical field, it is broken down into many sub-specialties – cardiothoracic, neurosurgery, oral and maxillofacial, trauma and orthopaedics, ENT, paediatric, plastic, urology, vascular and general surgery.

As a surgeon you would expect to work in an acute or specialist hospital and sometimes in surgical outpatient centers, spending your day in wards or operating theatres

What can you expect to do as part of a typical working week in the NHS?

A typical working week can include outpatient clinics, theatre sessions and emergency lists with certain types of procedure dependent on the sub-specialty chosen. You can also expect to be part of the surgical on-call rota.

Surgeons form crucial parts of an multidisciplinary team alongside a wide range of specialisms within the hospital.
