The British Neurosurgical Trainee Research Collaborative (BNTRC) recognises the need for high-quality data in surgical patient management and clinical workforce planning during the COVID-19 pandemic. In agreement with the collegiate position, we fully endorse and support the CovidSurg and CovidSurg-Cancer international audits. 


The national audit specific to neuro-oncology (CovidNeuroOnc) has now ended its data collection. We aim to have results disseminated by August. Details of this study can be found here

We wish all our colleagues and their families good health and strength during this challenging time.
