The BSGE has opened applications for the BSGE RIGS HUB National Training Programme.

The programme is a centralised, standardised BSGE programme, that is delivered through a series of hands on workshops at laparoscopic hubs within each deanery and online webinars. Each workshop will be facilitated by appointed RIGs regional reps, along with a BSGE faculty within each hub. There are 3 programme streams (Basic, Intermediate and Advanced) and the content aligns with the requirements of the core RCOG curriculum. We anticipate training to commence in March 2021 (Basic), April 2021 (Intermediate) and May 2021 (Advanced) and the programme will complete over a maximum period of 12 months.

BSGE RIGS Hubs National Training Programme Committee is made up of Donna Ghosh (BSGE Chair for Laparoscopic Training), Jessica Preshaw and Chou Pay Lim  (BSGE Laparoscopic Training Sub-committee) and Angharad Jones and Mikey Adamczyk (BSGE Trainee Representatives). Announcing the programme they encouraged BSGE consultant members interested in becoming faculty  within their deanery to register their interest by emailing
