Musgrave Park is looking fab thanks to the talented park gardeners from Belfast City Council.  Why not visit the park this weekend?  You are  guaranteed a warm welcome at the Bowling Pavilion and we would also recommend a visit to the therapeutic garden, just through the black entrance gates to the Bowling Pavilion on the right had side. Local schoolchildren were consulted in the design which includes a willow tunnel, disabled access plant beds as part of a community garden and a multi-sensory 'whispering wall'.

The Mayo Arthroplasty Conference 2018 was held this weekend in Knockranny House Hotel, Co Mayo.  The Conference is now in its 10th year and has evolved into the largest specialist joint replacement conference in Ireland. There is an emphasis on covering current controversies and new technological advances in the fields of hip and knee replacement surgery.  Our trustee, Professor David Beverland, presented on Reducing the Risk of Revision & Optimum Follow-up.

Our trustee, Professor David Beverland, has just returned from an international faculty meeting at ISHKS 2018 where he discussed best current arthroplasty practices to improve surgical performance and results.

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.
