I hope that you all enjoyed the OTS Conference 2019 as much as I did and have now recovered from the busy days and late nights of hardcore ‘networking’! I thought is was our best meeting yet, although I may be a little biased…
A particular thanks to our international guest speakers Maritz Laubscher and Jan Erik Madsen. Maritz and Jan added greatly to the programme with both their enormous experience in orthopaedic trauma, but also their willingness to join in the debates and discussions. I hope they will be able to join us again in the future.
I’d also like to highlight the excellent work of Dave Penford, John Skliros and the team from Clockwork Medical who keep everything running smoothly behind the scenes and liaised with the staff at St Georges Park. I thought the venue was great, although I’m still upset that no one wanted to join me on the footy pitches!
Alex Trompeter put together an exceptional Conference programme, covering everything from practice, through education to policy. I was also delighted that so many of you were able to join us for the NIHR/OTS Trauma Trials Day, which is now fully integrated with the main meeting. However, as ever, it was our membership who made the whole thing work. I love the fact that everyone has an experience, a thought and an opinion, and is happy to share them freely throughout the meeting. I think this is what makes the OTS special.
Paul, Alex and Will have big plans for the next few years, so please do keep an eye on developments and, even more importantly, get involved in your particular areas of interest.
See you all again soon.
