The RCSEd Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) Course is a one-day course aimed at surgeons across
all specialties.

The course examines the non-technical skills which underpin good operative performance.

The courses will be face to face course at the Chorley Hospital Education Centre 3.

There will be a variety of teaching methods and will be employed including small group work and simulated scenarios.

As part of the school of surgery’s commitment to develop and embed human factors / non-technical skills training in the education programmes and the workplace, all ST3s are required to complete a non-technical skill for surgeons (NOTSS) course. To develop faculty for these courses as well as enhance the HFs / non-technical skills teaching being delivered across all the programmes we are running two courses for consultants (&SAS doctors) only in addition to offering trainee course places to ST8 trainees.
