CORESS Reporting

CORESS – Confidential Reporting System for Surgery


CORESS promotes safety in surgical practice, both within the NHS and in the independent sector. CORESS is an educational service owned and operated by the professional bodies of UK and Irish surgery. It is sponsored by the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland and aims to serve all surgical disciplines by:

  • Analysing safety-related reports which would not otherwise be available.
  • At all times keeping the identity of the reporter confidential.
  • Publishing ‘Lessons learned’ feedback commentary in the surgical literature.
