Mersey and Northwest – Hannah Wright

Hospital: Royal Oldham Hospital

Grade: ST7

Special interests: Ovarian cysts in pregnancy, fibroids and adenomyosis.

My name is Hannah Wright, I am an ST7 in the North West Deanery having recently moved from North Central London where I completed my ST1-ST6 training. I am currently working in a BSGE accredited endometriosis centre in Oldham and I am completing my ATSMs in Benign Gynaecological Surgery, and Advanced Labour Ward Practice. Throughout my training I have been passionate about laparoscopic surgery as it is a dynamic and exciting specialty with new technologies constantly being developed. I am an active member of the BSGE. Last year I was part of a national working group who produced a new joint BSGE/RCOG Guideline on Laparoscopy in Pregnancy which is soon to be published. I reviewed the literature and produced the section on the laparoscopic management of ovarian cysts in pregnancy. I have taught on a European Surgical Skills courses in Athens including laparoscopic entry techniques and I was on the trainee committee in the North Central London Deanery.

I look forward to promoting membership of the BSGE to junior trainees and encouraging more active participation.

I am currently an ST5 trainee working at John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford.

My main areas of interest are Reproductive Medicine and Minimal Access Surgery.

I am also of the Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic simulation trainee reps of Thames Valley. I have organised simulation study days and currently am part of the team who is trying to implement a Minimal Access simulation curriculum.

I have benefited from various training opportunities from the BSGE, including bursaries and I will do my best to promote such opportunities to trainees and support them in their effort to build a career in Minimal Access surgery.

Wessex- Matthew Dipper

I have just obtained my CCT in Wessex deanery having completed the Advanced Laparoscopic Excision of Benign Disease ATSM in the BGSE accredited Hampshire Endometriosis Centre under the guidance of Mr Adam Moors and Mr Keith Louden.

I have been an active member of the BSGE throughout my training. As part of this membership I was privileged enough to complete the Olympus National Training Programme and undertake a travelling fellowship in Varese with Mr Fabio Ghezzi – experiences that have both fundamentally changed my practice.

I am passionate about taking minimal access surgery back to basics using only simple energy sources wherever possible including TLH.  I have a particular interest in the surgical management of severe endometriosis and have presented at both the BSGE and ESGE on topics related to this.

I want trainees in my region to know what opportunities are available to them as part of the BSGE and how achieve success in their minimal access career.
