SCTS continues to be an innovative, forward thinking organisation, addressing the interests of patients, cardiothoracic surgeons and the Nursing and other Allied Health Professionals involved with Cardiac Surgery, Thoracic Surgery or Congenital heart and lung surgery.
The SCTS is an independent self-funded organization, responsible to only our members. We are the representative body for cardiothoracic surgery in Great Britain & Ireland.

The SCTS was founded in 1934 and was initially devoted to the practice of thoracic surgery, which at that time was mostly for tuberculosis. After World War II, cardiac surgery was introduced.
