Welcome to Glospathology.com!

October 2018 saw the 17th Gloucestershire Gastro-intestinal Pathology Conference. There were more than 200 delegates and the meeting was a great success. Professor Derek Alderson, President of the Royal College of Surgeons, gave an excellent Guest Lecture and I am most grateful to my friends and colleagues, Geraint Williams, Marco Novelli, Adrian Bateman and Newton Wong for their excellent contributions to the meeting.

Now there is bad news and there is good news. 2018 will be the last Gloucestershire Gastro-intestinal Pathology course in its current format. I am getting long in the tooth and Viv Garland, who has been its excellent administrator for ten years, is retiring. Nevertheless, all is not lost. I am pleased to say that Dr Adrian Bateman has agreed to continue to run a very similar course. Current plans are that this may be held in Newbury Racecourse, instead of Cheltenham Racecourse, and it is likely that the first meeting will be in 2020. I will keep this website updated with further news when it becomes available. Thank you to everyone who has supported the Gloucestershire Gastro-intestinal Pathology Course so strongly for the last 17 years. I am really grateful.

Keep smiling!
