British Burns Association session at SARS

I have just returned from a couple of days at the Society of Academic and Research Surgeons (SARS) in Nottingham.

I had not been before. SARS is the main UK forum for surgical research and has been going just over 50 years. It is run out of the RCSEng. It is dominated by the general surgical sub-specialities; plastics, neurosurgery, ENT etc are poorly represented.

The BBA has recently become involved with two sessions of presentations and is allowed to put one abstract forward for the prestigious Patey Prize. The session was stimulating with a mixture of clinical and basic science presentations covering both burns and plastic surgery.

Apparently all of the submitted abstracts were accepted. The BBA is trying to grow this section - well worth submitting an abstract for the 2013. As an incentive there is a best presentation prize for each session!
