About CBS


We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Confederation of British Surgery (CBS), which has been formally approved by the Certification Office and is now on the registered list of trade unions in the UK.   

As a trade union, the CBS is legally entitled to negotiate terms and conditions of service and will be able to involve itself in matters relating to contracts of employment, litigation, insurance and other matters which Colleges and the Associations are excluded from on the basis of their charitable status.  

As such, the CBS is emphatically and specifically not in competition with the Surgical Colleges or Associations.

We aim to provide exclusive benefits to surgeons, extended members of the surgical team and their families. 

In protecting and supporting surgeons and their teams in the workplace, our ultimate aim is to improve the care of all patients requiring surgical care.
