Event Overview
Welcome message:

I’m extremely pleased to invite you to attend the Association’s International Surgical Congress in Manchester, from Wednesday 22nd to Friday 24th April 2015, which will be held at Manchester Central. Often cited as the world’s first industrialised city, Manchester is the third most visited city in the UK after London and Edinburgh. In the words of the late Brian Redhead, “Manchester is the capital, in every sense, of the North of England, where the modern world was born”. Ian Brown of the Stone Roses has claimed that “Manchester has everything except a beach!” It therefore gives us great pleasure to return to Manchester after our last Congress there in 2007.

The theme of the ASGBI 2015 Congress is ‘Patient-centred Care’ and we aim to make it an even greater success than our 2014 meeting in Harrogate, which attracted almost 1,400 delegates over three days – our largest ever meeting. On this point, I would like to congratulate my predecessor, Professor John Primrose, for his leadership of ASGBI during his two years as President. During his tenure, the Association has continued to go from strength to strength. Once again, we are delighted to have the annual Association of Trauma & Military Surgery (ATMS) Conference running in parallel to ours. As in recent years, the Congress will host a number of other parallel events. In 2015, the Congress will be a particularly special event as we will be sharing the venue with the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA). With this event expected to be the largest we have ever organised, we have decided to call the overall meeting the “Manchester Surgical Week”.

As before, we will have the usual major scientific sessions and a plenary Moynihan Prize short paper session. In addition, there will be a number of invited lectures from some of the most influential surgeons in the UK and abroad. Symposia will cover key topics including ‘Surgeons and the Law’, ‘Abdominal Wall Failure and Reconstruction’ and ‘Setting Up an Acute Service”. We will also run the ever-popular ‘Bad Day on Call’ and ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions. There will be plenty of opportunities to debate many of the current medicopolitical issues that impact our working lives, as well as learn about the most recent innovations in surgical techniques.

In Harrogate this year, ASGBI held the first ever paperless surgical conference in the UK and Ireland. After the overwhelmingly positive feedback, we have decided to continue with this format, so remember to bring your iPad or Android tablet with you. However, there will also be iPads to rent onsite.

Manchester Surgical Week should be a great educational and social experience, providing something for everyone. I would encourage you all to come with your team to this superb venue. Join us in Manchester for ASGBI 2015 Congress, not just for the science and the surgery but also for the craic. It’s your chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and talk about those who didn’t turn up.

Please submit you abstracts and DVDs by the closing date of midnight of Friday 2nd January 2014. We very much look forward to meeting you and members of your teams at the Congress and can assure you of a memorable event.

Finally, remember you can make big savings in registration costs by being a member of the Association and taking advantage of our Early Bird registration rate.
