BSGE Annual Scientific Conference Dynamic Earth, Newport 21st - 23rd May 2019

Prudent healthcare through innovation, technology and excellence

On behalf of the local organising committee, we would like to welcome you to Celtic Manor for the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting. This event is the result of collaboration between teams from Bristol and Cardiff, and we chose Celtic Manor because of its excellent conference facilities, as well as the fact that it is between both cities. The initial concept of this meeting was raised by trainees and from that point on, it has been driven by the trainee members of the LOC. We are proud of our younger colleagues and feel privileged to work with them.

Our theme is of providing prudent healthcare through innovation, technology and excellence. Minimal access surgery encapsulates features of all these themes and has a fantastic track record of improving patient’s lives as a result. Our programme is designed to inform as well as challenge, and we have sought to invite speakers who are able to do both. We have also innovated in the programme by introducing new presentation methods, and hope that they achieve their aim of increased audience participation.

Our specialty could not exist without technology. It enables us to provide a clinical service to our patients. In a broader sense, the close relationship that the BSGE has with industry sponsors also means that we are able to put on meetings such as the ASM, as well as running our training programmes throughout the year. We are grateful for the continued support from our industry partners.

The BSGE is a multi-disciplinary society. With this in mind, the programme has been developed so that participation is also multi-disciplinary. We have moved away from the nurse / doctor split in the programme, and hope that members of every sort will be able to learn from and contribute to the sessions together, reflecting the joint manner in which we all spend our working lives. It is this sort of teamworking that results in excellence in patient outcomes.

Celtic Manor is a “full on” conference venue. It has hosted the G7 summit, so it has all the infrastructure required for our ASM. Newport, the nearest town is some distance away, so the majority of delegates will enjoy the on-site conference facilities for the duration of their stay. We hope that this allows you all to socialise with colleagues, old and new. The social programme will also us give plenty of opportunities for catching up, including the Gala Diner, which is the high spot of the social programme.

The BSGE is a vibrant and energetic society and its success depends solely on you, the members. We hope that you contribute and participate in our ASM, and look forward to meeting you all at Celtic Manor 2019.

The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy exists to improve standards, promote training and encourage the exchange of information in minimal access surgery techniques for women with gynaecological problems.
Originally founded in 1989 by a small group of consultant gynaecologists keen to promote the benefits of minimal access (‘keyhole’) surgery for their patients, the society has since grown to over 1200 members. These include specialist nurse practitioners, GP’s, gynaecological consultants and their trainees.
BSGE exists not only to serve its members, but also to promote knowledge and understanding of the endoscopic approach to diagnosis and treatment to a wider public, including patients and those responsible for the formulation of healthcare policy.
To achieve this we work closely with partner organisations, most notably The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as well as The European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy, and also partners in industry on whom we rely for the many technological advances which make possible so much of what we can do for our patients.
