We have made the difficult decision to make our annual meeting virtual this year, so that all who wish to may attend despite the ongoing pandemic. Watch this space though for announcements on EXCITING International Speakers and Panel Events, along with free paper sessions on novel research and innovation. As always, the educational element will be second to none, with valuable CPD points attached for attendance. All content will be available to attendees virtually for 1 month following the event, making it excellent value. We look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome from the BTS President

Greetings to all fellow members of British Trauma Society in this even more tumultuous year of both Brexit & Covid-19! It is the 32nd annual scientific (ASM) meeting of the British Trauma Society (BTS). Last year’s ASM, due to be held in Oxford was cancelled owing to the Global pandemic – the first of its kind for over a century and a first cancellation for the BTS in it’s now 33 year history. We sincerely hope for calmer waters in the coming months and years for the UK and for our global cousins, as one thing this experience has taught us is that we are intrinsically linked on this fragile planet and our fates cannot be separated.

This year we are VIRTUAL and have yet another exciting programme. The theme is fittingly, Global Trauma to increase awareness of and to discuss how we can share our experiences and contribute to improvements in trauma worldwide.

There will be oral presentations and posters which will be judged and awarded prizes ranging from £500 for the best scientific paper or clinical paper and £250 for the second ranked papers. There is also £250 for the best poster and a separate £100 for the best student presentation. There is also a TLA medicolegal prize of £250 for any papers in this niche area. There will be innovative methods for interacting with the trade and virtual follow ups and symposia available.

BTS continues to grow and we have exciting plans this coming 12 months that include delivering a Human Factors in Trauma conference in September 2021 as a hybrid event and we are influencing & developing national guidelines for trauma. CPD points are awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons England for the ASM. We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Ian Pallister, of Swansea/Cardiff & DCOTS fame, as Education Director to lead our ground breaking national educational programs.

British Trauma Society is a friendly society and is constitutionally multidisciplinary and welcomes all specialities and allied healthcare professionals involved in the care of the injured from roadside to rehabilitation.

We look forward to seeing you all online in November to learn from a global trauma expert panel and hear the fresh ideas of students and trainees in trauma in the virtual space until hopefully the following year when we can meet in person to greet old friends and meet new ones.

Mr Ansar Mahmood
Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon, Birmingham UK
President of the British Trauma Society
