HRH The Princess Royal at the ASGBI 2015 Congress


The Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (ASGBI) is delighted to announce that Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will be officially opening the Manchester Surgical Week on Wednesday 22nd April 2015.

ASGBI, along with the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA) and the Association of Trauma & Military Surgery (ATMS), will welcome Her Royal Highness to Manchester Central, where she will open the Congress following the Welcome Lecture, delivered by Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council.

The Princess Royal has long-standing links to the military, a strong interest in healthcare and is President or Patron of over 300 organisations.

The visit from Her Royal Highness will no doubt be a major highlight at what is already expected to be a stimulating and informative week of education, innovation, collaboration and science. We look forward to welcoming you as a delegate to this landmark event in April.
