Message from the President

4th GBIHPBA Scientific Meeting

Dear colleagues and friends,

The 4th GBIHPBA meeting was a wonderful success – thank you to everyone who helped deliver such a varied and interesting programme! Read the report here and you can see some photos here.

Building on the success of the previous meetings, helped by the excellent venue in Leamington Spa we heeded the feedback and comments from previous events and retained the overall format whilst addressing emerging issues.

HPB surgery has changed dramatically over the last 20 years and new technologies and drugs have heralded a new era where we are moving steadily towards tailored medicine. This is a great opportunity to share knowledge and experience and recognise these changes with the increasing demands they place on trainees and trainers. It is also important to understand the issues that the increasing complexity of modern medicine and the consequent burgeoning choices poses for patients and include them at every stage as we go forwards.  Read More

Following the collation of round 1 responses, a further two rounds will be performed through the GBIHPBA membership for prioritisation scoring. It is hoped that the final list of prioritised research questions will inform the direction of HPB surgery over the coming years.
