London Recruitment runs the national recruitment for general and vascular surgery, this organisation replaced the London Deanery following restructuring in 2013. Since 2013, training in vascular surgery has separated from general surgery. However, recruitment runs in parallel with general surgical recruitment, and candidates are simply asked whether or not they would like to be considered for a vascular national training number. There are no additional requirements, and marking and ranking is identical to that for general surgical training. This is likely to continue for now, although recruitment may eventually separate completely. A lot of leadership and teamwork skills can be found on the person specification, also available through the London Recruitment website. The technical skills element will take 10 minutes and contributes 15% to final score. The clinical scenario contributes 15% towards overall score. The clinical management scenario contributes 10% to final interview score and can be more challenging.
