Christmas is a time for reflection and relaxation, taking stock and planning positively for the future. It is also about loving and caring for others, and reflects our professionalism, as clinicians, to do our best for our patients and each other (even if it is at a cost to ourselves). Please think of this when you plan your professional and personal lives for 2020, and consider the best ways that you can help others, as ultimately this rewards everyone.
BSP has had a busy year and we anticipate 2020 being as busy, with a range of webinars and courses alongside other developments. These kick off with an interesting seminar by Luigi Nibali and of course our platinum-standard Clinical Masterclass, both before the end of January. The Masterclass is also supported by two dedicated pre-course webinars, allowing the speakers to deliver even more teaching at the meeting itself. This then offers an excellent educational experience for a very reasonable outlay, and there are now only a few places left, so please book now.
As you will see below, we lost a much loved colleague this month. We will miss him very much.
Thank you for allowing me to be your President this year. Enjoy the rest of 2019, and best wishes for 2020.
