President's Message

Dear Association members and potential delegates, I am looking forward to giving you a very warm welcome to London for the Annual Scientific Meeting of the ALSGBI. It is the first time that the meeting will be held in Central London and I very much hope that it will prove a popular venue. Live surgery will on this occasion not be local to the meeting venue, but will be transmitted in 3D HD from the MATTU (Minimal Access Therapy Training Unit>

ALSGBI Training Day

Training Day now full

The ALSGBI Laparoscopic Training Day offers a unique opportunity for a dedicated full day of hands-on practical training by top laparoscopic surgeons from the UK. Places will be limited to 24 and are expected to go very quickly. The training is aimed at Trainees in Surgery (ST1 -4). Ideally it would appeal to trainees that had only performed 4 or 5 hernias. To qualify for a FREE place, trainees must register for the full Annual Scientific Meeting
