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 – BOOS 2021

We are delighted to be hosting this years conference in Bristol at the magnificent SS Great Britain on the 8th October 2021.  

We very much hope to be able to hold the conference face to face, however, we’ll be following government guidance closely and will be taking appropriate steps to ensure the safety of all attendees. Any updates on this will be added to the BOOS Website and Conference Website.


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. 

As well as the conference sessions there will be plenty of opportunities for networking during the breaks and at our annual dinner – more information coming soon! CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOUR PLACE!
