Welcome to Hull!

Welcome to Hull. We look forward to an exciting meeting for the BSGE in the 2017 City of Culture. The central city venue of the City Hall and the quality of the meeting should make it a great success, but it is your participation which will be the most important factor. We have a theme of what is happening now in the world of Gynaecological Endoscopy, both the cutting edge and what we feel all our patients deserve. We still have laparoscopic hysterectomy rates in this country which fall well below those of our European neighbours, but the BSGE is working on a programme to make the laparoscopic approach the default approach. This amongst others will be fully outlined at the meeting. Please see the provisional programme. There will be a chance to meet the experts and to see the way they manage difficult situations, their tips and tricks will undoubtedly help when you find yourself debating the safest thing to do during a procedure. For the paramedics the programme will include answers to some of the questions posed by the hysteroscopy and endometriosis nurses from previous meetings as well as a high level discussion on how to get your jobs and the banding recognised within your trusts. We have pre-congress workshops (17th May) organised to ensure  that your skills both practically and from a negotiating point of view are the best they can be.

I am sure you will all find the something within the meeting and with our sponsors of real value, with this in mind I welcome you to Hull in May (17-19th) 2017.

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 1000 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.
