Welcome to WAGE!
Welsh Association for Gastroenterology and Endoscopy (WAGE)
This website is under redevelopment, so please be patient as exciting changes are implemented.
WAGE exists to support the clinical care of patients in Wales with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver, and those requiring diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. The primary route towards achieving this is to bring together the following groups of healthcare professionals:
- Medical gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, clinical oncologists and many other subspecialties
- Medical, nursing and other healthcare professionals involved with caring for patients with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreatic and biliary tree, working in both North and South Wales.
Meetings & Awaydays: SAVE THE DATES
For 2016 we have a Spring meeting at the Life Sciences Hub, Cardiff Bay, which will be hosted jointly with the Welsh chapter of AUGIS on Friday 15 April. The theme will be oesophageal disease. Storz have kindly agreed to be the main sponsors of the meeting and Prof Ashraf Rasheed will be the convenor.
Our Autumn meeting will again be held at the Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells on Thursday 13 October. The theme this year will be an endoscopic “pot pourri”. We will cover wireless capsule endoscopy, PEG/PEG(J) and PEJ, as well as the use of Propofol to support endoscopy.
This will be preceded by an Awayday on Wednesday 12 October for which the theme will be “Hepatology”. This is timed to support the work programme of the Liver Delivery Plan http://gov.wales/topics/health/nhswales/plans/liver-disease/?lang=en
