Global impact of COVID19 on Surgeons and Team members (Global COST) in partnership with the Royal College of Surgeons (England)

Consent to participate in the Global impact of COVID-19 on Surgeons and Team members (Global COST) Survey:

Dear Participant,

As the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc over the globe, it forced us to consider alternative approaches to undertake our practice.

We aim to investigate the impact of COVID19 on surgeons and allied health professionals worldwide, of all specialities; on their career, family and home life as well as overall well-being- mentally, physically (including access to PPE) and financially.

The procedure involves filling an online survey that will take approximately 10 minutes. Your participation in this research study is voluntary. You may choose not to participate. Your details will be kept confidential. All data will be stored in a password protected electronic format. 

The protocol of the research project can be accessed at:

If you have any questions about the research study, please contact us on coststudy@globalsurgicalsurveys.org  or contact Mr Mohamed Imam, the PI on M.Imam@UEA.ac.uk 

Starting the survey indicates 
• you have read the above information
• you voluntarily agree to participate
• you are a surgeon (consultant or trainee)/ surgical assistant/ anaesthetist (consultant or trainee)/ operating department practitioner/ scrub nurse, currently in practice. 


Thank you,
