12th November 2017:

  • The GIB6 audit with go live in the West Midlands tomorrow! Sponsored by CORE, this will be the largest trainee audit in upper GI bleeding to date, aiming to improve quality of care and patient outcomes. We will be joining forces with East Midlands trainees (GARNet) and North West (GasTRIN NoW) to make this a prospective multi-centre quality improvement project.

  • The protocol and pro forma are now available (Project Page)

  • Please ensure that you are familiar with the documents - any queries can be directed to the GIB6 WhatsApp group, or via keithsiau@nhs.net

  • We will update the GIB page weekly with sites involved and progress - there will be prizes for sites with most patients.

  • Please spare a thought for GCP accreditation - this is free, available via this link (which provides a self-enrolment key - thanks to West Midlands Clinical Research Network) and allows us to provide quality assurance of our investigators. The certificate can be added to your CV and is recognised at ARCPs.

  • Anonymised data from the SBP project is now available from 5 sites (QEHB, Coventry, Hereford, Dudley, Walsall) - many thanks to those who have taken part. This has already been presented at our TD. We have received data from Warwick, and still accepting data from more sites who wish to get involved.

  • GIB6, SBP and RICOCHET will be discussed at the next WMRIG update at the end of our TD (4th December 2017).

  • Future presentations from gastro TDs will be posted via WMRIG - courtesy of Dr Ash Shah.

21st September 2017:

  • Our next WMRIG meeting will be after the Gastro TD on 6th October.  Preliminary results from the regional SBP audit will be presented.  We look forward to seeing everyone, especially the new ST3s, there.
