"I would strongly recommend the services of CBS to any surgeons in difficulty. I recently had dealings with the GMC and found the support, help and advice received from Professor MacFie outstanding. The whole process was very stressful and was having profound negative effects on my family life and well being. Professor MacFie was very supportive throughout the whole process and provided regular mentorship as well as advice on how to prepare reflective statements and answer questions from the GMC. Throughout the period Professor MacFie was in regular contact with me providing psychological support and help and was always available when required.

I unreservedly recommend the services of the CBS particularly Professor MacFie to any surgeon who may come across difficulties or dealings with the GMC in the future. I can say without doubt the intervention of the CBS in my case has resulted in the positive outcome I was hoping for."

" I have contacted CBS for advice on employment issue with my previous NHS Trust. CBS acted swiftly with an outstanding professionalism and great expertise on the topic. During this stressful time, I really appreciated the moral support from CBS, who assisted me with regular updates and advice.

I am pleased to have joined CBS as I feel more comfortable on my day-to-day practice knowing that I have an impartial adviser to safeguard me with a different perspective.

I would strongly recommend CBS services to any surgeon who come across any employment issues or difficulties with his/ her Trust in the future."

“ I recently needed advice about Job planning and contract changes at my Trust and was able to get personal contact immediately and followed the advice given. I have since been able to get specialist legal input as well as prompt telephone contact with an Accountant. Both of these professionals are affiliated and work closely with the CBS so are fully aware of the exacting circumstances that Surgeons face in their day to day dealings with Trusts, Tax, Job plans and contracts.

It’s great to feel that there is an organisation who is prepared to stand up for you and support you when you most need it. I am very pleased that I joined the CBS.”
