President’s message

The annual scientific meeting was once again an excellent event with presentations from a wide range of delegate with lively debates that continued in the bar afterwards! The annual meeting remains a hugely important focus of the year for upper GI surgery in the UK and Ireland. I hope trainee members will continue to use it to disseminate their work, gain a broader experience of practice across the country and socialise with a few like-minded colleagues.
