I work at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital as Fracture clinic Manager/senior Orthopaedic Practitioner.
My aim is to hold spring and autumn meetings. If anyone would like to have a meeting please don’t hesitate to contact me. It will raise your profile for the future. You only need to provide a venue and speakers and I will sort out the rest.
