The PLG is committed to achieving improvements for patients needing orthopaedic treatment and also nurturing a constructive dialogue between both orthopaedic surgeon and patient.

While extensive experience of the healthcare arena is not essential, applicants should have a keen interest in and knowledge of current issues.

Meetings of the PLG are held in London, and there is also an opportunity to participate in email discussion.

Any interested individuals should submit a CV and covering letter outlining their interest in the role to policy@boa.ac.uk as soon as possible.  Following your application there would be a short, informal, interview which can be completed via telephone or video call if preferred.
