11th December 2021

Dear Colleagues,


Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding the 9th Dilemmas & Debates in Colorectal Surgery Conference (DDCRS) on Saturday 11th December 2021 at Bush House, King's College London, WC2R 2LS. Rather than the usual 3-4 day conference, we will hold a one day conference as a way of reinvigorating attendance at physical conferences. The meeting will focus on 'Life after COVID-19' and will be hosted in collaboration with ISUCRS and ACPGBI - South East Thames Chapter and KCL.


As this is likely to be the first colorectal conference to be held in the UK in the past two years, we are hoping to capitalize on the success of our previous DDCRS meetings as well as our regular monthly ISUCRS webinars that host 350 delegates. In accordance with COVID-19, the venue has a maximum capacity of 80 delegates, so early registration is advised as space is limited.

The conference will also feature some distinguished international speakers via a web-based platform. This year's conference will be held in the traditional style with a full day of colorectal surgery sessions with a lively, entertaining debate session, 'the best of three podium presentations' and more.

The 11th of December is the date to be in Covent Garden, the heart of London. We look forward to seeing you there.

Yours sincerely


Mr Joseph W Nunoo-Mensah, Professor Narimantas E. Samalavicius, Mr Pasquale Giordano, Mr Piero Nastro
