‘I chose to run last year’s Belfast City Marathon Fun Run for BART as I value the importance of our joints and know of the amazing research this charity does with hip and knee replacements.  As a mother of two and a mental health nurse, I’m always looking for fun ways to spend time with my boys, while being conscious of keeping a healthy mind and body. What better way to do both than a Fun Run!’ 

Why not join Grainne and her boys and sign up for one of the Belfast City Marathon events on Sunday 3rd May 2020.  It’s important that you secure your place with the organisers at so please make sure you do this before you begin fundraising.  When you have your place, give us a call and we will send your fundraising pack.

In this the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife we thought you’d like to meet some of the great nurses we work with over the course of the year! Nurses are an essential part of the research team and we couldn’t do without them 😊 Watch this space for more details.

Check out some of the great work that BART has helped to support with Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMS) in Musgrave Park Hospital with Seamus O'Brien  and  Ellen Hayes

This year’s  BART Walk  will be held on Sunday 7th June at the Musgrave Park Bowling Pavilion, beside the hospital.  You can walk a mile or a while! There’s lots of family fun including live entertainment, cake sales and stalls.  See you there! 😊

Raymond Stevenson (Stevie) had his first hip replacement in Musgrave Park Hospital in 2000 and his second hip operation in 2016.  Stevie is a valued member of the BART family having been a volunteer  for many years.  He is the resident musician at our annual walk and family day held in June. Stevie has also be a member of BART’s patient liaison group and a volunteer at Musgrave Park Hospital.

Our research would not be possible without the important donations we receive throughout the year. So please help us further our work by sending a donation today.
