Story

Currently BSSH is invited to run a course for surgeons in training and physiotherapists from COSECSA countries at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre and a separate course for Orthopaedic clinical officers in Mangochi, Malawi with focus on clinical areas that WHO considered as essential.

Working in collaboration with World Orthopaedic Concern and the country's only hand surgeon, we have supported delivery of a Hand Trauma Workshop. This workshop was delivered by Jonathan Jones and Bo Polvsen to the countries Orthopaedic Clinical Officers who provide the initial care for all hand injuries. Further workshops and educational support are planned.

About the charity

The aims of the BSSH are to promote and direct the development of Hand Surgery, to foster and co-ordinate education, study and research, and to disseminate knowledge of Hand Surgery.
