Geoff Oates was our inaugural President in 1990. Sadly he passed away in 2013.
In recognition of the legacy he leaves behind and the thriving Society he co-created it was decided to offer a medal to a person considered by the Executive to have contributed substantially to the growth and success of the Association and to the practice of Coloproctology as a whole. It is anticipated that this award will only be given out in exceptional circumstances.
Any awards will be announced at the Annual meeting.
