Newcastle – our best Scientific Meeting so far

On behalf of the organising committee and BOMSS Council I want to thank everyone who came to the 6th Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel, Newcastle.

Mr Sean Woodcock and Mr Peter Small and their teams put together a superb programme, starting with a Training Day which included hands-on practical skills and mutli-disciplinary sessions.

During the conference itself we heard a range of informative, enlightening and entertaining presentations from international experts Professor Carel le Roux (Dublin) and Professor Wei Jei Lee (Taiwan) as well as our own Professor Francesco Rubino (Kings), Professor Roy Taylor (Newcastle) and Dr Melanie Bash (Newcastle).
