This year BTS will be heading to the Birmingham City Council House on the 9th -10th November 2016 and will once again bring together leading experts in the fields of Trauma and Orthopaedics to discuss central issues, current challenges and research in the assessment and treatment of trauma cases.
Welcome from BTS President Mr AD Patel
Dear members and attendees
A very warm welcome to each and every-one of you. Your active participation is most welcome as this will make this conference informative, enjoyable and memorable. I look forward to meeting with you all throughout the conference and if you haven’t already booked your ticket make sure you do so now. You can book to attend by clicking this link HERE.
This year the main theme of the conference is ‘the care of the injured using a multidisciplinary approach’ and over the 9th and 10th November you will see a host of paper presentations, keynote talks and poster presentations that reflect this. I would encourage you to join in the discussions following the talks as in my experience this is where the real message often comes out then. Unlike other meetings we have a friendly atmosphere which makes it easier to engage in the discussions. All paper presentations and posters are judged and prizes will be awarded.
On 8th November 2016 British trauma society is combining with the legal profession for a whole day of medico-legal issues. This is a popular day and places are limited so apply early.
At the end of the first day we hold our annual general meeting which is a must for all the members. You will be enticed to attend by a healthy supply of drinks and nibbles. Important decisions have to be made and they concern you. After this I would encourage you go to town and enjoy Birmingham city.
As in previous years we have received tremendous support from industry. Without their help it would not be possible to run this conference. Apart from financial help they are keen to engage with you to impart knowledge and I would encourage you to spend time with them. There will be a quiz and guess what, there will be a prize!
Finally, my grateful thanks to the whole of the executive board and to the event organisers, Archer Yates Associates, for making this conference possible.
I hope that you will learn a lot and enjoy your experience and tell all your colleagues.
See you in Birmingham!
Mr A D Patel MB, ChB FRCS
President; British Trauma Society
