Congratulations to Emma Cowie for receiving the 'Lois Barr' Memorial Award for 2015/16.

This prize is awarded annually to the student who achieves highest marks in the BCC examinations across all the UK courses.

Emma's response:-
"I attended the 2017 AOP conference after being told I had won the Lois Barr Memorial Prize. Part of the prize was a free place on the conference to receive the award. Although the thought of being up on stage was more than a little nerve wracking, I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience! As a result of the discussion on TCCs at the conference, I have made an objective within my department to audit the outcomes of our TCC patients. The conference was also a good opportunity to spend time with other orthopaedic practitioners from around the country. I will definitely come again at the next opportunity."

Congratulations to Beth Tite on receiving the David Rowley Award.

Beth is well known for her work on the BCC course at Stanmore. She works tirelessly to give all students the best opportunity possible. While working through the agencies around the UK, she provides an excellent role model for Orthopaedic Practitioners and trainees.


Workshop of the year.

This prize was awarded for the second time to BSN Medical who provided us with an excellent opportunity to revise our knowledge of developmental dysplasia of the hips and paediatric femoral fractures.
