SCOT is proud to support STEP. STEP stands for the Scottish T&O Equality Project. The aim is to be the first national project to survey all surgeons working in Trauma and Orthopaedics in Scotland, to gain a snapshot of diveristy in protected characteristics, experience of discrimination, and factors influencing career choices.

We would be grateful if you could visit their website to find out more about the Project, and complete the survey.
