Coping with the Challenges of Emergency General Surgery:
Establishing a modern acute surgical service

A one day meeting for consultants, senior trainees, clinical directors and surgical managers.

Friday 27th March 2015  |  Chancellor’s Conference Centre |  Manchester M14 6ZT



Emergency General Surgery is seldom out the headlines. It has become a pressurised and for some, unpopular part of surgical practice which dominates clinical outcomes and fills ward and critical care beds.

Yet outcomes vary three-fold between units across the country and forward thinking units have made rapid and substantial changes for the better. Developments including avoiding un-necessary admissions by ambulatory care, senior triage, hot clinics, better clinical leadership, modern systems of care including same-admission cholecystectomy have led to six-figure savings. Some larger hospitals have successfully sub-specialised emergency care and many have appointed Emergency Surgeons.

What steps should your Unit take and how should trainees prepare? Join us to hear national experts describe what works for them and what the future holds.
