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 they in medical, nursing, commissioning or related sectors.
The Association of Surgeons in Primary Care (ASPC) is affiliated with the Assocation of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Association of Surgeons in Training. We are pleased to announce that from February 2013 ASPC will be joining ranks with PCSA, our sister organisation in the Republic of Ireland.
The ASPC liases with the Care Quality Commision, 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.
