Message from the President

Mr Mark Taylor

Firstly may I thank Professor Dennison for his tenure as GBIHPBA President and for his hard work in making the 2018 GBIHPBA Meeting a success. Following on from the triumph of the 4th GBIHPBA Meeting which took place in March 2018, the GBIHPBA Committee will be looking to the planned joint meeting with AUGIS in October 2020 and the creation of an exciting and informative programme for HPB surgeons.

October 2020 may seem a long way off, so the HPB surgeon and trainee can look forward to the 2019 AUGIS Annual Scientific Meeting which is taking place in Liverpool, and which will have a varied programme with dedicated HPB Sessions which we hope will inform and educate.

Check the AUGIS website for updates and if you are not a member of AUGIS (which includes membership of GBIHPBA) I would urge you to join now by clicking here.


Best wishes

Mr Mark Taylor

GBIHPBA President
