The Association of Orthopaedic Practitioners UK



As many of you are probably aware we shall not be holding our annual conference in 2020. This is because we have agreed with the OTA to hold alternate conferences for the next couple of years.

However we cannot let 2020 pass by without a celebration of our 40th anniversary, therefore we have decided to hold an educational study day on Saturday 27th June with the focus being on practical skills.

This will be followed by an evening party with dinner and entertainment. Overnight accommodation with breakfast will be available. The venue is the Best Western Yew Lodge Hotel, Kegworth which is very close to East Midlands Airport.

Further details will be available shortly regarding registering and booking accommodation. We look forward to seeing old and new members as well as non-members, everyone is welcome!

So donít miss what promises to be an excellent educational day followed by a great party and celebration.
