This year the Welsh Surgical Society was extremely pleased to welcome Mr Mark Drakeford AM, Minister for Health and Social Services, to Christ College who gave the keynote speech during the conference.
Held over two days, the conference covered all aspects of general surgery and was broadly inclusive of all subspecialties within that field. There was also a parallel trade exhibition that delegates explored and enjoyed. A business meeting for all full members of the society (consultant general surgeons practising in Wales) also took place during the conference.
The first meeting of the Welsh Surgical Society was held in the Cardiff Royal Infirmary in May 1953 and the Welsh Surgical Society now convene bi-annually in May and November. The venue for this conference was Christ College’s new Centre for Creative Arts, Y Neuadd Goffa:The Memorial Hall, which opened in September.
