President’s Monthly Update – September 2021

Welcome to our September News Update. I hope you all enjoyed some holidays between the summer showers and feel refreshed for the autumn!!


Save the Date: British Hip Society Annual Scientific Meeting March 2-4 2022

We are well underway with the planning for the next BHS Annual Scientific Meeting which we hope will take place face-to face in Bournemouth next March. With the growth of the societies membership and the involvement of our Industry partners at the Annual Scientific Meetings, there are a limited number of venues that are large enough to host our meeting. The days of the President hosting the meeting in their home town are sadly in the past, and the Executive committee are exploring suitable venues for the meeting in the future. We hope to move the meeting around the whole of the UK as venue size and cost allows and we’ll keep you all posted with developments. Registration details and abstract deadlines will be sent out in the autumn.

ODEP needs you!

ODEP (Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel) is looking for new recruits to join the panel. This would suit experienced arthroplasty surgeons and the expected commitment would be for two face to face meetings a year, plus reading and some online appeal meetings. Please see the website HERE for more information.

Please contact Keith Tucker to express your interest in joining the panel:


I hope to see many of you in Aberdeen for the BOA and restart face to face meetings again!
