Supporting patients and doctors

LFSM was established by a group of surgeons with the simple aim of improving the culture of openness in surgery. By acknowledging when things go wrong and sharing our experiences in a supportive environment we hope to reduce errors and provide support for surgeons and patients.

Throughout the year we host a number of online and face to face meetings attended by some of the most senior voices in surgery today.

Latest Mistakes 

Browse through our curated library of surgical errors which has been compiled from real mistakes by the surgeons who made them. Find out what to do if you encounter this situation yourself and what the outcome was for the patient.  

Latest events

In addition to our online material we regularly host national and regional events where we promote our values of openness, honesty, and integrity.
