Welcome to the Association of Surgeons in Primary Care (ASPC)

This Association is for all those who perform surgical procedures in the community. We provide support, training and professional development to our members. We host an annual conference and run an accredited audit programme.

Membership is open to all who have an interest in developing such services; be that in medical, nursing, commissioning or related sectors.

The Association of Surgeons in Primary Care (ASPC) is affiliated with the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and has links with the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Association of Surgeons in Training and the British Association of day surgery. We are pleased to announce that from February 2013 ASPC has joined ranks with PCSA, our sister organisation in the Republic of Ireland.

The ASPC liases with the Care Quality Commission, Care Commissioning Groups and represents members in negotiations affecting the provision of surgery in the community. Our Council includes experts across the spectrum of minor surgery who provide a valuable information resource to all ASPC members.

Recent Achievements:

  • Defining professional standards
  • Lobbying for expansion of community services through commissioning
  • Audit development
  • Link up with PCSA
  • Membership of ASGBI committees focused on training and research in community surgery
  • Building and consolidating relationships with trade organisations
