President’s Message


A busy few months ahead!

As a membership association AUGIS should respond to opportunities which are beneficial to the development of the organisation. Two such opportunities have arisen which Council have considered carefully and believe are important as AUGIS progresses with its responsibility for upper GI surgery in Great Britain and Ireland.

Firstly, we have been offered the option of becoming a Privileged Society of the British Journal of Surgery Society. This has a number of benefits including a position on the BJS Society Council, continued support for our scientific meetings and subscription for members to the BJS.

Council believes this will enhance AUGIS’ position in advising on both academic and service developments. There will be a small increase in subscription to cover access to the BJS, but our subscription has not increased for a number of years. We plan to present the details at the AGM in Brighton before considering taking up this option in January.
