BAUS 2016 Liverpool

The 2016 BAUS Annual Scientific Meeting took place from 27 to 30 June 2016 at the BT Convention Centre (pictured right), Kings Dock, Liverpool Waterfront.

President's Welcome

BAUS President, Mr Mark Speakman, offered the following welcome to members and guests attending the 2016 meeting:

It is a real pleasure to welcome you to the historic maritime city of Liverpool for the 72nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Association of Urological Surgeons. Liverpool is now a truly dynamic city with much to offer beyond the meeting itself. It is of course the hometown of The Beatles and the world-famous Grand National at Aintree Racecourse and two well-known football clubs. 

I have to thank Duncan Summerton, our Honorary Secretary, for putting together an exceptional scientific programme. The Academic, Andrology (AGUS) and Female (FNUU) Sections are holding their annual meetings on the Monday 15 June and the Oncology and Endourology Sections are contributing significantly to the scientific content as well.

Paul Jones, our Honorary Secretary Elect, has produced an excellent programme of Teaching and Skills Courses with the introduction of several new courses this year.

We are fortunate again to have attracted a significant number of world-leading urologists from around the world. This includes a number of Presidents and leaders of other national Urological Associations. The aim is to give you, the delegates, a comprehensive overview of the latest in world urology. Thursday in particular is a strong day with sessions presented by the American Urological Association (AUA), the BJUI and also by the International British Urology Society (IBUS). Please therefore use the whole Meeting to achieve your continuing professional development.

The Welcome Reception will be held in the Exhibition Hall at 18:00hr on Monday 27 June and will provide an additional opportunity to visit the exhibition, this will be followed by the 5-a-side football competition. The main social event is on Wednesday 29 June evening at 18:00hr and is a drinks reception, which will be held in the Grade I listed Royal Liver Building (pictured right) which is part of the UNESCO designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City. This will be a great chance to catch up with friends and colleagues.

I would also like to express my thanks to our colleagues from the pharmaceutical and equipment companies for their very generous support of BAUS at the Annual Meeting and throughout the year. I hope therefore you will show your appreciation by visiting their stands in the Exhibition Hall during the week. We have scheduled times into the programme to allow you to visit the exhibition.

Finally, I would like to offer my special thanks to the Organising Committee, the BAUS Section Chairmen, Secretaries and Committee Members, our Abstract Reviewers and, in particular, Duncan Summerton and the staff in the BAUS Office (especially Hannah Doyle, Events Manager and Harry Heald, Events Coordinator), for the enormous amount of work that they have put into planning this meeting.

On behalf of the BAUS Council I welcome you to the BT Convention Centre, Liverpool ...
