Under the terms and conditions of membership, the Orthopaedic Trauma Society has no mandate to divulge either personal information, or even confirmation of membership unless directed to do so by an order of the court. To do otherwise would constitute a breach of the Data Protection Act (2018).
You are hereby advised that, as a research-focused organisation with a voluntary membership, the OTS neither requires nor maintains HIPAA-compliant IT systems, and the Society holds no mandate to act on behalf of any member in medico-legal matters.
