Ever since visiting Chūo General Hospital (Tokyo) in 1999 to visit dr. Junichi Iwadare, it has been my sincere wish to visit Japan again. The wonderful combined initiative by the Japanese and European Societies has finally made this possible for me.It was a great honour, to be selected for this wonderful opportunity. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my hosts, prof. Tadahiko Masaki and Dr. Hiroyoshi Matsuoka for organising and hosting my trip to and through Japan.

A significant step forward was possible this year when the Education and Training Committee were able to announce the availability of 3-month fellowships, made possible through the generosity of both Medtronic and Covidien, both already loyal major supporters of the Society at the annual meeting each year, but who have now also provided an educational grant to enable a total of 11 ESCP Fellows to take up an excellent opportunity to train abroad.

I feel honored and extremely fortunate to have won the British Journal of Surgery Prize for my free paper entitled 'Electroacupuncture for Postoperative Ileus after Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery: A Randomized Sham-Controlled Study' presented on 22 September 2011 at the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) Annual Scientific Meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark.

It was a great honour to be selected as the recipient of the 2011 ESCP Japan Travelling Fellow. This allowed me to spend a week at the world renowned National Cancer Centre (NCC) in Tokyo before attending the 66th Japan Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) meeting in Tokyo. During my research years in London, I had read many high quality scientific journals from Japan and had hoped that one day I would be able to visit and observe the Japanese health system.
