Surgical Advisory Service
The Surgical Advisory Service has been established by CBS to assist and advise surgeons who, for whatever reason, find themselves concerned they are in jeopardy. As a trade union, CBS and SAS are able to legitimately advise on medico-legal matters and all issues relating to terms and conditions of employment. This advice comes from experienced consultants, backed up by legal and other experts in relevant fields.

How can CBS help you?
The CBS medico-legal advisory line is available to all CBS members to offer support in all matters arising from your work (complaints or processes).
As a trade union, we are independent of your indemnity provider and are here to help you. No concern is too small, so if there is anything you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact the CBS advisory line to speak to Emily Borhan who will discuss the matter with you and offer advice and help address your concerns. For more complex situations Emily will assist you to gather the relevant evidence and pass the details to the CBS Executive Council for further consideration to help navigate towards the best solution.
CBS is committed to providing the most effective course of action to support and address your concerns.
