Event Overview
Welcome message:

Professor John Primrose, ASGBI President

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to attend the Association’s International Surgical Congress in Harrogate, from Wednesday 30th April to Friday 2nd May 2014, which will be held at the Harrogate International Centre (HIC). Situated in the heart of the UK, Harrogate is a picturesque spa town full of history and character. It has grown to be one of the best events industry destinations in the country and the HIC is one of the largest purpose-built event venues in the north, regularly welcoming national conferences and exhibitions.

The theme of this year’s Congress is ‘Education and Innovation’ and we aim to make it an even greater success than our 2013 event in Glasgow, which saw 1,100 medical delegates attending over three days. As in 2013, the annual Association of Trauma & Military Surgery (ATMS) Conference will run parallel to ASGBI on the Wednesday. We are also pleased to inform you that the 2014 Congress will host a number of other parallel events. The International Conference on Surgical Education and Training (ICOSET) will take place on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th April and the Association of Surgeons in Primary Care (ASPC) will be holding workshops on Thursday 1st May. We are also pleased to be hosting a symposium entitled “The Surgeon and the Primary/Secondary Care Interface” on Friday morning. This is being run in partnership with the Royal College of General Practitionersand we are delighted that the RCGP President, Professor Mike Pringle, will be speaking in this session. Professor Pringle is one of the many high-profile speakers we are welcoming to Harrogate in 2014.

There will be the usual major scientific sessions and a plenary Moynihan Prize short paper session, in addition to invited lectures from some of the most influential surgeons in the UK and abroad.  Symposia will cover topics such as the Shape of Training Review, Patient Safety in Surgery and the ever popular Bad Day on Call. Many of the current political issues which are influencing all of our working lives will be debated and discussed and, as always, we will try and bring to you the most recent innovations in surgical techniques and instrumentation.

The latter will be achieved to an even higher standard in 2014 as we announce the arrival of a brand new Innovation and Simulation Zone, which takes the place of the traditional Industry Exhibition. Here, delegates will have the chance to get interactive with the latest surgical simulation equipment, showcased by companies who specialise in this area. These educational experiences will fit perfectly with the theme of the meeting, which will continue throughout the workshops and poster presentations and, of course, there will be ample opportunity for informed debate and discussion. Thus, I would encourage you all to bring your colleagues, junior staff, nurses and partners to this superb venue.

Do come to Harrogate and join in with the science and the surgery. Most importantly, come to the Congress to meet old colleagues and make new contacts, all in the spirit of ASGBI’s primary objective, which is to nurture friendship between surgeons.

Please submit your abstracts and DVDs by the closing date of midnight on Friday 27th December 2013. We very much look forward to meeting you and your ‘teams’ at the Congress and can assure you of a memorable event. Finally, do remember that it is cheaper the earlier you book.
