***The British Society of Orthopaedic Anaesthetists has decided to postpone our Spring Scientific Meeting (SSM) in April 2020 in Oxford pending Government advice regarding public gatherings. This meeting will be reinstated as the 25th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) and will take place on Monday 9th November 2020 at the same venue.

The BSOA takes its responsibility seriously to protect clinicians and the public from contracting COVID-19 and inadvertently propagating the disease. In light of increasing demands on health services, the Council felt that it was no longer appropriate to host a large-scale event and to take healthcare professionals away from where they may be needed the most in the coming weeks and months.

The Society will be contacting members/delegates, speakers and exhibitors to inform them of the postponement over the next couple of days.  We understand that this decision will have implications for many of you and ask for your understanding and patience whilst we work through the next steps.***
