British Trauma Society
About the Society

The British Trauma Society was founded in 1989 by a group of orthopaedic surgeons who recognised the need to consider trauma care as a multidisciplinary concern. Since then the society has flourished. The yearly meetings have been well attended with a relaxes atmosphere and an enthusiastic but discerning audience. Social activities, be they discussing issues with others who share the same clinical interests, or re-making acquaintances at the annual dinner, are catered for too. The Society brings together committed clinicians with an unashamed interest in trauma care and at the same time offers the opportunity for consultants and trainees to present papers on a wide range of relevant topics.

The Society continues to support the interests of orthopaedic traumatologists, as is borne out by the number and quality of papers on related topics presented at the annual meeting and the number of orthopaedic surgeons who are active members. It also embraces the interests of other, equally important, specialties, such as emergency medicine, anaesthesia and intensive care, general surgery, radiology and faciomaxillary surgery. In accordance with its commitment to multidisciplinary care, the Society plans to attract other specialists, particularly neurosurgeons who play such an important part in the spectrum of trauma seen in the UK.
