The coalition government have now identified some recommended changes as a consequence of a review of the current system. However, the changes are yet to be implemented so once again for 2013 we are complying with an interim system which may, or may not, take place later this year.
For Royal College of Surgeons support, we have to make recommendations to them for Bronze, Silver and Gold awards by 5th April 2013. This means that BAPS would need to receive applications for these awards (from those seeking College support) by 5th March 2013. YOU MUST ALSO APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE COLLEGE
For Platinum applications, these need to made to the College by 22nd March 2013. Please send these to BAPS by 5th March for us to make recommendations to the College.
