Dear Member

A successful AUGISt trainee masterclass was held in Nottingham – you can see some photos here. This was a two day residential course with up to date best practice guidance, MDT simulation session, Vivas for pre-exam candidates, technical skills sessions for more junior registrars and sessions for trainees and new consultants on how to manage and organise life in an UGI surgical practice. Our thanks to Medtronic for their support with this meeting.

Mrs Venitia Wynter-Blyth (AHP rep) created a follow-up to last year’s highly successful Training Day for AHPs and Clinical Nurse Specialists which will ran in parallel with the masterclass in Nottingham. The course was aimed at nurses, dieticians and physiotherapists involved with the care of UGI patients and the programme covered many aspects of OG and HPB problems with a host of quality speakers.
