In line with many events this year, we have had to cancel our annual gathering which was to take place in Inverness at the end of October.
Instead we are planning three 1 hour long Webinars on the evenings of Tuesday 15th to Thursday 17th September, hosted by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. We will include topics such as Trauma in rural areas, Rural General Surgery and Sub-specialties in the Rural Hospital. Our aim is to provide a program of interest to Rural General Surgeons in the UK, trainees in general surgery, and the many Rural Surgeons practicing thoughout the world
Further detail soon on this site and the Edinburgh College Website
This year our meeting will be held in the Health Sciences building, Raigmore, Inverness. It is being held a little later in the year to fit in with the Surgical Training programme. Trainees are welcome to attend the whole meeting or come for the day on Thursday 29th

From Josep, conferene organiser:
The meeting will take place in Siglufjördur/Iceland between Wednesday, September 4th and Friday 6th.. It starts - as usual with the golf on Wednesday!
There are innumerable flights from UK - and European cities - to Keflavik/Reykjavik, Iceland. There are flights from Keflavik to Akureyri - where we had a meeting in 2009 - , and Siglufjördur is about 78 km north of Akureyri - there are buses, of course. And, of course, renting a car and driving through the Icelandic scenery is a good option.
Siglohotel, Siglufjordur. http://www.siglohotel.is/ Your hotel. On that location there was a „barrack“ where the „herring girls“ stayed during the herring season. My friend Robert bought the old house - which was in a very poor state - had it demolished and built the hotel, but kept the architectonic style when it was designed.
Booking room is easiest by e – mail : email@example.com , tel. +354 4617730, and don‘t forget to mention the Viking Surgical Club and the dates.
