GSU Leadership in UK for Strategic Development Meetings

GSU Hub Directors and Managers attend a multi stakeholder meeting on improving surgical training and delivery

Senior leadership teams from across our network came together in Surrey to meet collaborators on the Wellcome Leap SAVE: Surgery: assess, validate, programme. The meeting provided an excellent platform for progressing this programme which aims to advance training for laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery by harnessing advancements in training simulations and advanced patient monitoring.

The meeting also provided an opportunity for the partners from Benin, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Rwanda and the UK to have in-depth face-to-face discussions about the Unit’s work across its programmes

Following the meeting in Surrey, the Hub Managers travelled to Birmingham for a bespoke management training session that covered areas ranging from organisational communications strategies to trial closeout and dissemination.

It was a hugely productive and enjoyable week, with great progress made on all fronts.
