The Faculty of Perioperative Care Annual Conference 2019 programme is designed to incorporate all non-medical practitioner roles in surgery. Although an ambitious venture, the 2 day event will cover specific areas of practice relating to the more established roles i.e. SCP and SFA, but in addition will address the contributions made by the more recent appointments of Physician Associates (PA) and Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACP) in surgery. Confirmed speakers for the conference include Clare Sutherland, Senior Professional Advisor and Corporate Lead for Advanced Practice, Derby NHS Trust, Norman Briffa, Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, Teresa Hardcastle, Senior Lecturer Dept of Allied Health Professionals, Edgehill University, Andrew Dickinson, Consultant Urologist University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust and many more.

This meeting is open to all perioperative practitioners, as well as surgeons who work closely with advanced practitioners (e.g. surgical care practitioners, surgical first assistants, Physician Associates) and have an interest in the future of the surgical team.

The ALSGBI Silver Jubilee Annual Scientific Meeting 13-15 November 2019

This year we are celebrating 25 years since our formation. Our programme is designed to demonstrate and explore the full range of laparoscopic and robotic general surgery.

The Training Day will provide opportunities for a large number of trainees to receive a day of focused hands-on training with a high ratio of faculty to trainees. LapPass will again be represented, with plenty of opportunities for certification.

The live operating brings a wealth of extremely talented surgeons to the table. Cases will be transmitted from operating theatres in Leeds and Sheffield, with additional ‘as live’ cases presented within the auditorium. We will be showcasing procedures on all the general surgical solid organs (liver, spleen, adrenal and pancreas) as well as some intra-luminal gastric surgery.

The latest in robotic technology will be on show from Sheffield using Firefly fluorescence and demonstrating a complete mesocolic excision.

The day will be rounded off with a short practical symposium on how to bring innovations and technology into our cash-strapped services.

We are delighted to have some world-class speakers from Europe in keeping with our strong links to the EAES. Dr Filip Muysoms, from Belgium, is a leader in the field of abdominal wall surgery and will share his wisdom on the latest trends, and the role of robotics in minimally invasive abdominal wall surgery.

Professor Richard van Hillegersberg from the Netherlands, one of Europe’s foremost robotic experts, will be sharing his expertise on oesophagogastric surgery. He will be sharing the floor with Professor David Jayne looking at the evidence for MIS and robotics in upper and lower GI surgery. This information is especially relevant now as cost containment is pitched against innovative techniques.

Other highlights include an update on advances in therapeutic flexible endoscopy crossing traditional surgical boundaries and the academic video and oral presentations. There will be prizes for the best talks, videos, posters and research presentations.

The ALTS programme is equally stimulating and Mrs Debbie Gooch has brought together a great programme with team-working as a major theme.
