Dear friends and colleagues

As I’m sure many of you already know and the everyone else may well have suspected, the April 17th 2020 GOAL meeting is cancelled.

Hopefully see you all in November.

Keep well and take care.

See you tomorrow!

We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the GOAL meeting tomorrow. Programme now published and available on this website under “Meetings”.

Please remember, if you haven’t already done so, to join (or re-join) GOAL using the “Join GOAL” tab above. This enables us to keep the member database in order and GDPR compliant. Many thanks.

In order for GOAL to be GDPR compliant, we unfortunately need to reconfigure our membership database.

So if you haven’t done so in the last six months, we need to ask you to rejoin GOAL using the “Join GOAL” page on this website. This should take less than a minute and will ensure that you continue to receive all GOAL emails.

Please note, you need to use the “Join GOAL” form, not the “Sign me up!” button on the right of this page, as this is merely to receive blog post notifications. Obviously, it would be great if you were signed up for these too but the “Join GOAL” form is the important one for our membership database.

Many thanks.

Thank you Croydon; Hello and Goodbye!

Many thanks to the team from Croydon Hospital for organising and presenting a thought-provoking, varied and stimulating meeting on 27th April.

Also at the meeting, Dr Philip Barclay from West Middlesex Hospital was elected the new Secretary of GOAL. Many congratulations! Any messages you send to the GOAL secretary via the contacts page of this site will now go to him.

A huge thank you goes to our outgoing secretary, Dr Vinnie Sodhi, who has put in a huge amount of work over the last six years to keep GOAL running smoothly. A small presentation was made to Vinnie at the meeting as a token of our thanks.
