Message from the UGI congress follows:

Dear Colleagues

We have made the exciting decision to proceed with the UGI Congress in Belfast between 13 to 15 October 2021. The meeting will be a hybrid meeting with capacity for both face to face and virtual delegates. We believe that this will provide flexibility for all our constituent Society members irrespective of future circumstances.

We have an early bird registration fee that ends on the 10 September 2021 and is the same registration fee as the AUGIS Scientific Conference in 2019. Due to current social distancing regulations in Northern Ireland the number of face to face delegates will be limited and given out on a first come first served basis. When you register you will have a choice of either face to face (F2F) or virtual (Virtual) registration. If the situation deteriorates, face to face registrants will be moved to virtual registration. Virtual only registrants should not travel.

The registration fee for both face to face and virtual registration is the same since the advanced audio-visual and streaming package available at the Assembly Rooms in Belfast is our most significant expense. Face to face registration will only be available up to the 10 September 2021.

To find out more and to register, visit: www.ugi2021.co.uk/registration

AUGIS/BBUGSS/GBIHPBA/Pancreatic Society and UKIEUS all are supporting and commited to this meeting. We have already had several hundred abstracts submitted. Abstract submission date has been extended to the 26th August 2021.

We are making plans for an exciting and fantastic Congress. Please register now in order to confirm your place. Importantly it will allow us to plan for a secure and safe on site conference in October. Visit: www.ugi2021.co.uk

COVID-19: It's impact on EUS and Endoscopy

Dear Colleagues

We are now entering the ‘rebuild’ phase set out by our Government. To rebuild our economy, mental and physical health, in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS. 

We are all working to rebuild our services hit by what is now names ‘COVID-19’,an unknown and remorseless foe. In this phase, it is apt to remind ourselves of the heavy price paid in terms of mortality and morbidity across the world. The NHS , Social Care and other Key Workers, have stepped up extraordinarily to face these challenges head on and consequently our elective activity has significantly reduced. 

BSG and many other national and international societies have been very supportive with timely guidance on emergency activities and now on ‘restarting’ and ‘rebuilding’ our capacity and semblance of managing demand with pragmatic and evidence based guidelines. 

Myself and Manu, in the meantime have been working in the background to build a more accurate picture of the EUS service, training and its expansion across the UK and Ireland regions. We have made many modifications to our communication lines with our current members and the wider EUS community. You would see us on popular platforms engaging with a much wider audience, and help build the EUS network. We will also be working to improve the education content across various platforms and we welcome suggestions, novel ideas and corrections where appropriate!

We look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us via the links on our website or other social media platforms.

‘STAY SAFE, REBUILD FOR A SECURE FUTURE’

Discover the premier annual event of UKIEUS Society.

Dear Colleagues
We are now approaching the change in the seasons and also time to look forward to exciting changes in the UK and Ireland EUS scene. As you are all aware, we have our annual EUS meeting (previously called the EUS User’s group meeting- some of you will remember!) on 26th and 27th of September at the Magdelene College in Cambridge. The event looks absolutely packed with excellent content and the delegates will surely find this a very interesting and educational meeting indeed. Kudos to Nick Carroll, Manu Nayar and the team for all the hard work.
As the visitors to our website can see, we have a new look to the whole website and hopefully this is both pleasing to the eyes and also user friendly. We will be updating many of the sections within the website over the next weeks and months, so please look out for this.
Don’t forget to follow us on twitter at #ukieus @ukeussociety and the September meeting on #ukieus2019, and also our facebook page.
Look forward to seeing you all in Cambridge.
