|dc.description||The recent publication of three reports - Hanly, Brennan and Prospectus dealing with various aspects of acute hospital services advocate many reforms. Therefore, it seems appropiate and timely for the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and the broader surgical community to set-down their views of the future of surgery and Its specialties over the next decade or so. We do so in the spirit of our Charter, which requires the College to ensure high standards in surgical practice. In this task, the College draws from its experience in surgical training, teaching and the promotion of surgical research and our interaction wilh a worldwide network of surgical colleges. Heretofore the views of the surgical community as a whole have not been articulated. Therefore the modus operandi of the Forum was to garner opinions from the specialties of surgery, and thereby to express a coordinated, coherent view of how we see the future development of surgery in Ireland, and to publish the proceedings of these deliberations, so as to inform debate on surgical services over the coming years. Specifically, it is our intention that this summative document will Inform all the stakeholders and in particular the general public, our patients and the government on what we believe is needed so as to provide a first-class surgical service, one which will serve us well for many years to come.||en|
