St Mark’s Association Day

Friday 6th May 2022

St Mark’s Day, the AGM and the Trainee of the Year Award

Dear Colleague

Last year my predecessor Asha Senapati ran a hugely successful virtual meeting. I am hoping that this year we will be able to provide a hybrid offering, with an in-person meeting at our new location at Central Middlesex Hospital, and virtual attendance will also available. There are some AV challenges at the new location, which we are working to overcome by 6th May, but if we do not succeed, we will revert to a fully online format.

The theme of the meeting will explore our moniker ‘St Mark’s, The National Bowel Hospital’, showcasing our multidisciplinary units that provide a genuinely national service, what exactly they do, how they underpin clinical care with research and education, and how to assess these services.

There will be a dinner on the evening of Friday 6th May at the Royal Society of Medicine, Wimpole Street (whether the actual meeting is hybrid or virtual). Places are limited to 65, so please book early! To book, please use the link you were emailed or contact the Academic Institute at
