Calling All GI Nurses to Endolive UK 2017 - Just 6 weeks to go!

On behalf of the BSGNA I am delighted to invite you to Endolive UK 2017. The first Endolive meeting in 2015 was the largest live endoscopy meeting ever held in the UK with more than 500 delegates. The two day meeting will be held at the Birmingham ICC with live links to two of the UK's premier endoscopic centres, St Mark's in London and Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

The very best of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy will be demonstrated with a real focus on quality and this year we have a dedicated nurse forum. There are sessions to address;

  • Competencies in GI nursing
  • GI workforce
  • Optimising outcomes for our patients

We aim to emphasise the importance of the team approach to ensure patients experience a quality endoscopy. We have also introduced the option of a team booking. Registration details can be found in the attached flyer.

We hope the meeting will bring us all up to date with the latest advances in endoscopic technique, technology and practice.

I hope you will join us at this fantastic event. For further information contact me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
