About this section

The Surgery Section’s purpose is to provide a forum for the discussion and advancement of the art, science and practice of general surgery with some emphasis on the branches and sub-specialties that relate to this to all healthcare professionals and their students. The Section’s regular meetings provide a platform for participants to keep up to date through the exchange of ideas and in turn, provide top-quality care to their patients.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
