SIGNEC UK was established as a special interest group for necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) by Professor Minesh Khashu to help advance a field of neonatal medicine that is poorly understood. NEC continues to be the major cause of mortality and morbidity for preterm infants. SIGNEC provides a platform for involvement of a wide range of healthcare professionals to facilitate knowledge sharing, networking and collaboration for optimising research and improvements in practice. The fourth SIGNEC UK conference took place on 26-27 September 2016 at Chelsea Football Club, London, attracting a multidisciplinary audience of 157 delegates comprising neonatologists, paediatricians, neonatal surgeons, basic science researchers, neonatal nurses, parents, dietitians and representatives from charities and the healthcare industry.
