Presidential address

Even in this difficult COVID period when the majority of robotic surgeons were not able to operate on the robot we have continued to focus on robotic surgery awareness through education and training. We had a very successful virtual 11th Annual Scientific Meeting in June 2021 organised by Nahid Gul with 100 participants. Several aspects of robotic gynaecological surgery were discussed with an emphasis on education and training. I would like to thank Nick Elkington, Past President for his hard work in the achievement of charitable status of the society and his role in safe implementation of robotic surgery within UK and Ireland. Nahid Gul has been instrumental in the development of our excellent website and training modules. We have started a robotic gynae surgeons registration and accreditation process. Thanks to all other council members for their excellent work in teaching and promoting robotic surgery amongst the gynaecological community. Our society is growing and we are looking forward to work together with other platforms to increase the robotic gynae procedures available for our patients.
