This symposium provided an update in aspects of gastroenterology that are  of  relevance  and  interest  to  both  the  general  physician  and  specialist gastroenterologist. Everyday  practical  dilemmas, such  as  the  investigation  of  iron deficiency anaemia, consideration of PEG feeding and the management of IBS, were considered alongside updates in the management of variceal bleeding and alcoholic and  non-alcoholic  fatty  liver  disease.  Looking  to  the  future,  developments  in endoscopy  safety  and  quality, with  particular  reference  to  the  colorectal  cancer screening programme, were outlined.
