Prestigious scientific forum held at Wexham
WEXHAM Park Hospital recently hosted the prestigious Oxford Scientific Forum for Obstetrics and Gynaecology (OxSFOG).
The educational event, organised by Mr Abdul Wagley, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist and Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecology Tutor, with the help of a committee of Wexham Park Hospital Obs and Gynae consultants, was attended by more 100 delegates, made up of trainees and consultants from across the Thames Valley region.
Invited speakers covered topics such as, innovation on the delivery suite, fibroids in all its various presentations, the obstetric network, and the services of the endometriosis centre.
There was also an interesting talk on the medico-legal changes in respect of consent following the recent Montgomery v Lanarkshire case given by Mr Bertie Leigh, Hon FRCPCH, Senior Partner at Hempsons Solicitors.
Trainees from the School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Health Education Thames Valley, were given the opportunity to showcase their work, through oral and poster presentations. These were judged by a team of consultants from across the Thames Valley region, with two of the four prizes awarded to projects from Wexham Park Hospital: Dr Archana Ranganathan and Miss Pampa Sarkar won the best poster presentation and Dr Elizabeth Goodall and Mr Philip Reginal won the best oral presentation.
The Rehana Dawood prize for the most valued trainee was also launched in her memory following her battle with cancer.
The first winner of this award will be announced at next years OxSFOG.
