Dear Member

At the end of June AUGIS took part in the second Digestive Diseases Federation at the ExCel Centre in London. The meeting was once again very successful in terms of overall attendance (in excess of 4,000 people attended for one or more days) and content with some excellent Plenary session talks and joint AUGIS sessions with ACP and BSG.

AUGIS member attendance was significantly less than at our usual annual meetings and we will be looking at the results of a survey and assessing the financial implications of this meeting before making a decision on whether or not AUGIS takes a full part in the planned 2018 DDF meeting.

Elsewhere, AUGIS Council members have been busy in the compilation of various guidance documents. In March, a joint document on “The Future of Emergency General Surgery” was agreed with ASGBI and ACP as the main stakeholders in the provision of the future Emergency Surgery service.
