ALSGBI Position Statement - Laparoscopy in a COVID-19 Environment

The Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons have released a position statement regarding Laparscopy in the COVID-19 environment which can be accessed below. 

Trusts are now increasing elective surgical work and are continuing to do so despite the recent increase in new cases. Patients are stratified into low and high (and even intermediate) Covid-19 risk groups. How surgeons approach these patients and the protection measures they take is a choice each trust and surgeon will need to consider. The ALSGBI strongly considers that laparoscopic surgery should still be employed in treating both elective  and emergency patients and encourages surgeons to be familiar with our most recent statement.
