Policy & Engagement

Through our policy and engagement work we are:

  • Producing guidance on policy issues affecting our members and the patients they care for, such as:
    • GIRFT implementation guidance found here
  • Informing policy by providing high quality evidence and expertise on trauma and orthopaedic issues, for example through:
    • consultation responses and position statements, all of which can be accessed here 
    • correspondence and meetings with relevant policy-makers
    • representation on a wide range of national bodies and committees 
  • Championing important policy issues that underpin our goal of ‘Caring for patients, supporting surgeons’
  • Collaborating with partners and other stakeholders wherever possible in all of the above.


Our Policy Team welcomes enquiries from members, policy-makers and anyone else interested in policy issues regarding trauma and orthopaedic surgery.  Please contact us on: [email protected] or phone 0207 405 6507 and ask to speak to the Policy team
