BART would like to say a big thank you to Volunteer Now for their training programmes and support for our BART Volunteers who made history at the 2019 BCM events.  Volunteer Now is the lead organisation  for promoting volunteering across Northern Ireland and provide access to a whole range of opportunities.  Why not sign up and you can join us at the Half Marathon in September!

How often should a patient be followed up following joint replacement?  Our latest paper suggests patients can be safely discharged after their first review if a robust self-referral system is in place. Listen to Professor Beverland discuss this in his podcast with The Bone & Joint Journal :

Exciting times!! Today we have our first patient going through the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) programme. This programme is aimed to better prepare patients for their surgery and help them recover more quickly ☺

20th May is International Clinical Trials Day. An annual recognition of when James Lind started what is often considered the first randomised clinical trial aboard a ship on May 20, 1747. While we haven’t been conducting trials for this long we have helped improve patient care through the trials we have done over the years. This would not be successful without our patients and staff, thanks to all.

The family of Mrs Lily Henry took part in the 9 mile walk event at the Belfast City Marathon on Sunday 5th May in memory of  their wonderful mother and grandmother.  They had a great day and have raised almost £1,000 for BART.  We very much appreciate their support.

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.
