CHARTER DAY MEETING TUESDAY 5 - SATURDAY 9 FEBRUARY 2019 - Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
THE RCSI ROYAL CHARTER

In 1765 Sylvester O’Halloran, a surgeon from Limerick, had proposed a College of Surgeons
in Ireland along the lines of the College de St. Cosme in Paris, which had been regulating
French surgery since its creation by royal charter by Louis IX in 1255. O’Halloran called for a
college of surgery to be founded in Dublin to train, educate and examine persons in the art
of surgery. This lead to a group of Dublin surgeons joining together and forming the Dublin
Society of Surgeons in 1780. The main goals of the society were to separate surgeons from
the Barber Surgeons Guild and provide surgical training, education and regulation in Ireland.
They lobbied for a royal charter in 1781 and presented the Lord Lieutenant with their petition.
The Lord Lieutenant presented the petition to King George III who saw it fit to grant a royal
charter on 11 February 1784 establishing the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. The first
President was Samuel Croker-King (1728-1817) and the first Professor of Surgery was William
Dease (1752-1798).

                                                                                                  3

        NATIONAL OFFICE OF CLINICAL                                                             Desmond
                                                                                                Auditorium
        AUDIT (NOCA)
          NOCA - Excellent healthcare for Ireland shaped by good information

          NOCA was established in 2012 to create sustainable clinical audit programmes at national
          level. NOCA is funded by the Health Service Executive (HSE) Quality Improvement Division,
          governed by an independent voluntary board and operationally supported by the Royal College
          of Surgeons in Ireland. Working with the HSE and the Department of Health (DoH), through its
          National Clinical Effectiveness Committee (NCEC), NOCA designs, establishes and supports
          a portfolio of national clinical audits based on national priorities that include burden of care,
          variation of care, availability of clinical standards and economic benefit.

          NOCA enables the Irish healthcare system to continually improve by maintaining a portfolio of
          prioritised national clinical audits, measuring care against national and international standards.
          By making reliable data available to those who use, manage and deliver healthcare, clinical
          audits help to refine Irish healthcare, improve patient outcomes, and achieve change at local and
          national level.

          NOCA advocates for change at a national level, arising from key findings in our audits. We do
          this by working with senior decision makers at both policy and operational levels within the Irish
          healthcare system. NOCA promotes transparent reporting and publishes national annual reports
          for each of its audits as well as providing regular reports to hospitals. National clinical audit, while
          still relatively new in Ireland, is recognised by those who deliver and manage healthcare as a key
          component to improve healthcare through the systematic collection and analysis of data that
          assesses if the level of care provided meets the required standards.

          NOCA’s current audit portfolio includes:
          • Irish Hip Fracture Database (IHFD)
          • Irish National ICU Audit
          • Irish National Orthopaedic Register (INOR)
          • Major Trauma Audit (MTA)
          • National Audit of Hospital Mortality (NAHM)
          • The National Perinatal Epidemiology Centre (NPEC)
            -Perinatal mortality in Ireland
            - Severe maternal morbidity in Ireland
            - Very Low Birth Weight Infants in the Republic of Ireland

          Emily Winifred Dickson (1866-1944) broke boundaries when she became
          the first female Fellow of RCSI in 1893, which made her the first female
          Fellow of any of the surgical royal colleges in Britain and Ireland. RCSI
          established the Emily Winifred Dickson Award in honour of the
          achievements of this pioneering woman. The award recognises women

        NATIONAL CLINICAL PROGRAMME                                                          O’Flanagan LT

        IN SURGERY
        The National Clinical Programmes represent a strategic initiative between the Health Service
        Executive’s (HSE) Quality and Clinical Care Directorate and the various post-graduate training
        bodies. The programmes aim to design and implement change initiatives to improve and
        standardise the quality of care and access for all patients in a cost-effective manner. The
        Programmes are structured with broad cross-functional input and with clinical leadership being
        provided by the training bodies to ensure that the patient remains at the centre of any change
        recommendation.

        All National Clinical programmes share three core objectives:
        • To improve the quality of patient care delivered to all HSE patients
        • To improve access to appropriate services
        • To improve cost effectiveness

        The aim of the National Clinical Programmes in Surgery is to provide a framework for the delivery
        of safer, more timely and accessible, more cost effective and efficient care for the surgical patient.
        The NCPS works closely with the Clinical Programmes in Anaesthesia, Acute and Emergency
        Medicine, Older Persons and Critical Care among others, as well as with colleagues throughout the
        HSE, patient advocacy groups and all relevant stakeholders across the health system.

        The National Surgery Programmes report directly to the RCSI Committee for Surgical Affairs (CSA)
        and to the Director of Clinical Strategy and Programmes Directorate in the HSE. While the National
        Programme set out to be generic at the outset, it now includes other surgical programmes such
        as Trauma and Orthopaedics and also sub-specialty advisors including General Surgery, Urology,
        Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, and Vascular Surgery with the aspiration that other
        subspecialties will, in time, have representation coordinated through the National Office.
