Industry Relations & Meetings
Poole Hospital, Poole
The BSGE’s relationship with industry continues to go from strength to strength. This allows the society to stage first class scientific meetings as well as run advanced training programme in laparoscopic hysterectomy supported by both Ethicon and Olympus.
Support for the Annual Scientific Meeting in Cornwall has be outstanding. We would particularly like to thank our platinum sponsors for this meeting Covidien/Medtronic, Ethicon, Karl Storz, Olympus Medical and Stryker UK. Other sponsors include Braun Medical Ltd., Espiner Medical Ltd, ConMed UK, Hologic, Kebomed UK, Lotus (SRA Developments), Smith & Nephew, Stericom Ltd and Teleflex Medical UK.
In addition this year the BSGE, in collaboration with the RCOG, will be running a one day symposium at the RCOG on ‘Modern Management of Fibroids’. This will be held on Friday 4th November. This has also been well supported by industry and there are only a few sponsorship packages left. If you know of any company who may wish to sponsor this meeting please advise them to contact Tyrone Carpenter (tyrone.carpenter@ poole.nhs.uk) or Ursula Samson (USamson@RCOG.ORG.UK) as soon as possible.
The BSGE is always looking at ways to enhance industry relations so if you have any ideas or suggestions please let up know.
