Welcome to Cornwall!

We are delighted to be hosting the 2016 BSGE Annual Scientific Meeting and hope you will join us for a stimulating meeting in a beautiful setting.  The main Conference will be in the dedicated conference centre at the Bedruthan Hotel on the stunning north coast of Cornwall, on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th May 2016.  Before the main meeting we will be holding three different Masterclasses on Monday 16th May 2016 at the Royal Cornwall Hospital:

Live Laparoscopic surgery training

Two theatres will run in parallel to give uninterrupted expert surgical demonstration, with opportunity to discuss techniques with the operating surgeons.  There will be unedited video presented of other procedures to view a wide selection of complex laparoscopic surgery and pick up hints and tips to improve your own technique.  Currently we are planning; Laparoscopic Sub-total hysterectomy with in bag morcellation, total laparoscopic hysterectomy techniques and retroperitoneal dissection including ureterolysis. More details here.

Outpatient Hysteroscopy training and skills demonstration

An experienced faculty will take delegates through techniques and procedures using simulators and state of the art demonstrations.  A wide range of equipment will be available from our industry sponsors to give you experience of what’s possible. More details here.

Hands on Training and assessment (HOT sessions)

Following successful introduction of the ESGE structured Box trainer sessions at The Silver Jubilee Meeting, we will be running this stimulating and educational training session again.  Learn techniques and see how your skills rate against peers.  All delegates will be registered online and receive confidential results of their performance from the European Academy direct to their smart phone, tablet or computer. More details here. THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULL.

Included in the Masterclass registration fee, which is separate from the conference fee, is all catering and transport to Bedruthan Steps Hotel at the end of the day, for those who request it when booking.

A parallel programme will run in the main hotel for the nurses sessions.  Tuesday 17th May will be Endometriosis Nurses conference and Wednesday 18th May will be Nurse Hysteroscopist conference.  Programmes for both sessions are full of interesting topics and excellent speakers and can be attended by non nurse delegates as well.

Our industry sponsors will have pride of place in our dedicated palladium which will be constructed specially for the conference.  This will allow well laid out displays and the opportunity to meet and discuss equipment and products with our sponsors in a comfortable spacious setting. The all day catering will be in the industry palladium for registered delegates, so you can enjoy refreshments and network whilst seeing the stands.

BSGE would like to thank our Platinum sponsors for supporting BSGE ASM 16, Cornwall

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.
