EndoliveUK 2017 (www.endolive-uk.org.uk, #EndoliveUK2017) was the largest live endoscopy education event ever held in the UK, with two of the gastroenterology team from The Physicians' Clinic, Dr George Webster and Dr Gavin Johnson, responsible for delivering this headline event, on behalf of the British Society of Gastroenterology (www.bsg.org.uk). More than 630 consultants, trainees and endoscopy nurses attended the two day event on March 2nd-3rd at the Birmingham International Conference Centre (www.theicc.co.uk).
The programme included live endoscopy cases, which were streamed from St Marks' Hospital in London and Glasgow Royal Infirmary, state-of-the-art lectures, meet-the-experts sessions and industry supported symposia. Course director George Webster commented "the aim of the meeting was to showcase the best of UK endoscopy, and to help all our endoscopy teams to deliver excellence in patient care. We wanted all of us to end the meeting with a better understanding of not only 'how to do it', but 'when to do it'. Delegate feedback has shown that 97% graded the meeting as 'excellent or good', and so we hope that we have achieved this important goal".
