EYCN was set up by a task force of colorectal surgeons in late 2019 to provide support for Consultants in their first five years of practice. Such support would take the form of mentoring, opportunities within the profession and career progression, as well as advice on other aspects of Consultant practice including job-planning, handling complaints, inquests, litigation etc.
Each term of membership will be for a maximum of 3 years, apart from individuals seeking to Chair the organisation in their 4th year, and those who reach 5 years of Consultant practice who will automatically demit office. It is anticipated that at least 2 face-face meetings will be required annually as well as teleconferences.
