BOOS Presidential Message: COVID-19

During this challenging time, BOOS is committed to the safety of our members during this rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We have therefore made the decision to postpone the 2020 Annual Meeting until November.

We need to work together to ensure that you remain safe and are well-equipped to provide care to patients who require urgent or emergency surgeries. We refer members to the BOA statement on trauma and orthopaedic care statement-for-boa-members-on-trauma-and-orthopaedic-care-in-the-uk-during-coronavirus-pandemic.htmlUnprecedented difficult decisions are being made by Hospital Management including de-prioritisation of cancer surgery that we will need to support our patients and their families through. 

As the crisis continues to grow the challenges will get greater and many of us will be working outside our comfort zones. We will face new stresses on ourselves, families, colleagues and friends. We need to be prepared and strong. But we also need to be in a place to restart services when the crisis is finally over.The BOOS leadership stands with you. Stay healthy.

President BOOS

Annual Meeting – Now Virtual!

Due to the latest guidance from the UK Government in relation to COVID 19 we have made the decision to run the BOOS Conference 2020 virtually. Although we are not able to meet face to face we still feel it is important that the BOOS meeting takes place and look forward to be able to to offer expert keynote sessions as well as free talks from abstract submitters, highlighting cutting edge developments in the field of orthopaedic oncology. 

The conference is open to all professionals in the sector and we look forward to receiving abstract submissions on all aspects of orthopaedic oncology, including basic science and clinical aspects of metastatic bone disease, and primary bone or soft tissue tumours. 

Online ticket sales are now open, click HERE to register your place.
