An excellent programme is on offer for the Scientific Meeting in Brighton next month. Plenary sessions include a comprehensive discussion on Early Diagnosis of Upper GI Cancers with a special presentation by Sean Duffy – the National Clinical Director for Cancer, plus sessions on current management of acute pancreatitis and acute gall bladder disease.
We are delighted to have a number of International colleagues who will speak on their areas of expertise and are particularly pleased that Dr Justin Dimick of the University of Michigan has agreed to give this year’s BJS lecture: Does Surgical Skill Really Count?
There will also be a plenary session discussing the current topical issues on Service Commissioning, Shape of Training and Emergency Surgery.
As usual there will be a plenary short paper session for the BJS prize, in addition to a parallel paper session for OG, Bariatric and HPB topics. Once again there will be sessions for our Affiliate members which has proved very popular in the past. Specialist nurses and dietitians are encouraged to attend our meeting in Brighton.
