Liver Unit 30 Year Celebration- Looking Back, Moving Forward; 3 Decades of the Liver Unit

Virtual Meeting 13-14th May 2021

Thank you to everyone who sent messages after the meeting:  we are happy to share a few of these here

This was a meeting of outstanding quality with a vast range of copies covered, excellent speakers involving all areas of multidisciplinary specialities caring for patients with liver disease.  I particularly enjoyed the session “new drugs and therapies on the block” with latest talks by Dr Thompson and Dr Trivedi.  The key note lecture by Prof Adams, The Immunotherapy talk by David Wraith and the PSC talk by Professor Hirschfield.  Overall it has been an overwhelming good meeting reflecting what collaboration and multidisciplinary work can achieve.  Thank you for arranging this for us.

Thank you  Professor Kelly and Sir Ian two wonderful days of tributes it was so deserved! What a great team. Have a lovely weekend all of you. xxx 

Kind regards,  Elaine

 Last 2 days have been a highly rewarding experience for me.

Many thanks to team at BCH for this opportunity to be a part of this academic program in the virtual platform. 

I was very fortunate to listen to Prof.Kelly’s retirement speech a shortwhile ago and also the farewell speeches of her esteemed colleagues including allied health professionals which spoke tons about her charisma and commitment to better the lives of children. 

What an awesome career Prof.Kelly had indeed !  

A true legend and trailblazer by all standards 🙏  

Sitting in a remote corner of the globe in these testing times, her illustrious and illuminating career inspires me manifold as I embark on my journey to develop the recently set up maiden Unit of Pediatric Gastroenterology under public sector at Govt Medical College,Thiruvananthapuram in the Southern most State of India, Kerala 

Please convey my humble regards to Madam Prof.Kelly  

Wish her all Health and Happiness in retired life  

Looking forwards to meet her in person sometime in future hopefully  

With warm regards,

Thanks again BW



Thank you so much for the brilliant organisation of this big event. 

Please let Prof. Kelly know that she will be always in my heart. I will never forget her teaching sessions in Birmingham, her presentations all over the world, her presence in Bulgaria, how caring she was  about our patients and their families. I wish her to be healthy and to continue to enjoy her academic work. She has given so much to all of us and to the world of science and there is still more to come. How amazing is this!  

Thank you

Best wishes
