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

Friday 27 March 2015, Manchester

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 the ASGBI to hear national experts describe what works for them and what the future holds.
