396 mile round trip to teach at the Centre!


A BIG thank you to ICENI Faculty member Adam Farquarson who completed a 396 mile round trip to lead on our GI Anastomosis course this week.  The commitment from the Centre’s faculty to support our learners does not go unnoticed by our trainees and staff as commented by a delegate ”

According to Mr Farquarson the distance travelled was time well spent as hr believes the workshop as a great way to learn and perfect the abilities they need to operate safely and efficiently which will directly benefit patients.

Not to be out done, learners also travelled the length and breadth of the country from as far as the Princess of Wales hospital for a 334 mile round trip to learn from expert’s!

This year our VERY popular GI Anastomosis course was a fantastic opportunity for our FY2 – ST2 trainees to gain further knowledge of the theoretical principles and practical techniques of gastrointestinal anastomosis. The positive feedback continued this year from our delegates as they described the Faculty as helpful and approachable.

Our modern, fantastic facilities were able to hold 11 skilled delegates adhering to COVID19 guidelines, with on top of the Faculty who had the best training equipment at their disposal for their hands on practical sessions throughout the day. Furthermore, we have plans to develop this course even further by implementing the use of Inovus SIM technology using the anastomosis model, for a follow on session for people who attended Septembers course.

with to identify areas of strength and areas for development which is essential, as the skills obtained will be directly applicable to participants’ clinical practice on return to their workplace. In particular, it is valuable for those currently placed in gastrointestinal surgical units.

Following its success again this year, the course, held the 13th of September 2021 is planned again for next year (dates to be confirmed), so in light of the popularity of this course and the limited places available, we strongly advise booking early to avoid disappointment.
