Our aim is to play a key role in maintaining and advancing the standards of orthopaedic trauma in the British Isles.
We will achieve this by being:
- A forum for Orthopaedic Trauma surgery in the British Isles.
- The focus for Orthopaedic Trauma research, training and education.
- The organiser of scientific meetings on Orthopaedic Trauma.
- The representative body for British Orthopaedic Trauma to Government, national bodies and organisations, and international organisations.
The OTS is an inclusive body representing the interests of all those treating Orthopaedic Trauma.
As of September 2017 we have 170 members.
There are two categories of membership are available:
Consultant Membership (£50)
Full membership is open to consultant orthopaedic surgeons with an interest in orthopaedic trauma surgery, research and education.
Associate Membership (£50)
Associate membership is open to surgeons of all other grades, as well as nursing and other paramedical staff, with an interest in orthopaedic trauma surgery, research and education.
