The British Trauma Society was formed twenty-four years ago with the aim of being a multidiscipline Trauma Society, in order to bring together all the various specialities that are used in the care of the injured patient. In the past the society focused on one speciality, however, now it is being re-launched as a society for all trauma specialities including neurosurgery, thoracic surgery, general surgery, vascular surgery, orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery, anaesthetics, rehabilitation medicine, physiotherapy, and allied emergency services.
Throughout the years the society has been very well supported by the industry – the members of the society have been patient and supportive, for that I am grateful. I am pleased to announce that an annual two day meeting of the society is being planned for this autumn. As in previous years there will be paper presentations, keynote speakers and discussions supported by international and national faculty. With generous prizes for presentations being maintained!
The society is forever striving to encourage the younger members to hold office and drive the society forward. The various posts will be announced shortly. We hope to see you at this year’s annual meeting.
