Are you a specialist surgeon who occasionally finds yourself in need of a GP or MO to assist you in the operating theater when your regular assistant is unavailable? Perhaps you require an assistant but hesitate to approach someone new due to uncertainty about their surgical capabilities.

As a GP or MO, you may have a keen interest in participating in surgical procedures, but the challenge lies in being asked to assist on a theater schedule.

That's where Surgical Assistant comes in. We offer a comprehensive platform where GPs/MOs can register their availability to provide assistance in the theater. Surgeons can then utilize our services to connect with vetted GPs/MOs who are ready to lend their support in the operating theater.

Surgical Assistant acts as a convenient one-stop solution for surgeons, ensuring they can find qualified theater assistants within a reasonable timeframe, regardless of the time of day.


We understand the importance of timely and reliable assistance in the surgical setting, and our platform is designed to meet those needs effectively.
