At the  BART Annual General Meeting, held last month,  Trustees were appointed for a 3 year tenure.  Those present congratulated the team on completing recruitment for our study on psychological factors involved in recovery from knee replacement surgery, a research project in collaboration with Queen’s University.  They also commended the TRAC 24 team on their progress to date in particular the 76% up take in patient participation and the integrity which a trial of this magnitude will produce.

Many thanks to the Lock Keepers Inn for hosting a BART collection box.  This is a great place to stop for coffee and cake when walking in and around the Lagan Towpath. Cyclists, walkers, children and muddy dogs all made to feel welcome!

It was fifty years ago this month that a team of approximately 20 doctors and nurses gathered to watch Northern Ireland's first hip replacement being performed by visiting Surgeon, Peter King, at Musgrave Park Hospital. Mr King was assisted by local Senior Trainee Surgeon, John Halliday and by Consultant Anaesthetist, John Alexander. Mr Halliday recalls that: "It was a new treatment we hadn't had before which held out great promise to help a lot of people who were having very severe pain due to arthritis."  Since that morning in 1967, the Trust has performed the transformative operation on thousands of patients.

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.
