East Anglian Orthopaedic Club

17th November 2017

The Apex, Bury St Edmunds


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the organising committee for this year’s EAOC meeting, I look forward to welcoming you to the the meeting on 17th November at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds.

We have specifically aimed the meeting at the general orthopaedic surgeon, the likes of which makes up the majority of the regions workforce. With this in mind, we have invited a mixture of previous Norfolk and Norwich trainees and current consultants. The aim is to cover the generality of trauma, but with each speaker chosen due to their specific tertiary experience.  Please find the program for the day below, we hope you are as excited about the content as we are!
