The principal object of the Fund is to promote innovation in the design of surgical instruments and techniques. To this end The Cutlers’ Surgical Prize is awarded annually to a surgeon who has performed outstanding work in the field of instrumentation, or technical development in any branch of surgery. Entries are judged by a representative of the Company in conjunction with the Royal College of Surgeons.

Its other objects are the making of grants in support of surgical research and medical charities; and the provision of educational grants in the field of surgical and medical technology.

The Cutlers’ Fellowship in Surgery is open to Members and Fellows of The Royal College of Surgeons working in hospitals throughout the UK to undertake a period of time overseas to learn a surgical technique, procedure or treatment which they can then practice on their return to the UK to benefit their patients in the NHS.  Further information about the Fellowship can be obtained here.
