18:00 - 21:00

We had two professors travelling up from Oxford University to present.   

  • Professor Jonathan Rees will be well known to you.  He is Professor of Musculoskeletal Sciences at Oxford.  He has had a number of national roles and is currently president elect of BESS.
  • Professor David Beard is also travelling up.  He is a Professor of Musculoskeletal Sciences at the Nuffield Department in Oxford and is also a Co-Director of the Royal College of Surgeons Surgical Intervention Trials Unitt.

They are coming up to present and discuss their work in association with both the UKUFF and C-SAW trials.  I think this will be a great opportunity to question them with regard to this research and its implications going forward in clinical practice.

The North West Upper Limb Group should be very proud that we have been able to persuade such an eminent pair of speakers to visit us.  Our secretary should be congratulated on his work in achieving this.
