Welcome from BTS Immediate Past President Mr AD Patel
The British Trauma Society is going from strength to strength and is a now a thriving and lively society formed to promote research and education in the care of the injured.
It has a wide following in the United Kingdom with international connections which will be further reinforced by an association with the European Society for Trauma and Emergency Surgery (ESTES). This further reinforces that the British Trauma Society is multidisciplinary and is open to all grades of healthcare professionals involved in the care of the injured patient.
Fellowships and grants are available and members are encouraged to make full use of them.
The 27th Annual meeting will be held at the Mercure Sheffield St Pauls hotel & spa on the 8th & 9th November with an instructional course on the 7th November 2017.
The meeting offers a wide range of opportunities for you to engage with healthcare professionals of all seniority, often the majority are Orthopaedic and Trauma surgeons. There is a big drive to encourage attendance from consultants especially as the subject matter fits nicely with their validation in trauma care and this has been strengthening in recent years. A new innovative scheme tried at the previous meeting resulted in a greater exchange of ideas and face-to-face interaction.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sheffield!
Mr A D Patel MB, ChB FRCS
Immediate Past President of the British Trauma Society
