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.
