The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd) has announced two appointments in Northern Ireland as our health service continues to face significant backlogs and waiting lists in the wake of Covid.

Andrew Diver, Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Kingsbridge Hospital in Belfast, and Mano Shanmuganathan, Consultant Neurosurgeon at Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast, are Regional Surgical Ambassadors and will play a key role in the college’s endeavours to supports members here.
