SCOT is proud to support STEP. STEP stands for the Scottish T&O Equality Project. The aim is to be the first national project to survey all surgeons working in Trauma and Orthopaedics in Scotland, to gain a snapshot of diveristy in protected characteristics, experience of discrimination, and factors influencing career choices.
We would be grateful if you could visit their website to find out more about the Project, and complete the survey.
SCOT have released a statement highlight the current challenges facing the delivery of orthopaedic services in Scotland. The statement highlights urgent measures that SCOT believe are required to re-establish an acceptable level of orthopaedic care.
We are sorry to announce that due to the current COVID increase in cases and pressure on NHS services, the SCOT Committee and Winter SCOT Organisers have decided to move to an online format. We hope to return to the traditional format for the Winter 2023 Meeting.
We are grateful to Stryker for providing sponsorship of the meeting. This is contributing to funding the online webinar format along with the research session prizes. There has been no input or direction as to the nature or content of the educational or research sessions.
