About Us

Surgeons Quarter Travel is a Hays Travel affiliated agency managed by Surgeons Quarter, the commercial arm of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Surgeons Quarter Travel was established with the initial intention of streamlining travel for surgeons and fellows of the College, but is now expertly arranging travel and holidays for all.

Caring for people is fundamental to what we’ve been doing since 1505 when The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh was established. Over those years we’ve been pushing the boundaries of surgical care and medical excellence for the benefit of everyone, and that passion for precision and innovation is reflected in our proficient travel team.

As part of Surgeons Quarter, our profits go towards advancing surgical care and improving patient outcome worldwide. By travelling the globe with us, you are helping to improve patient outcome around the world.

Our industry experts are here to coordinate everything for you. All you have to do is pack your bags.
