Presidential Merit Award

These awards are intended for those individuals whose exceptional contributions to trauma and orthopaedics have not achieved recognition through the UK honours system. The criteria are intentionally broad and include work in the developing world, national research programmes, professional leadership roles in the NHS and BOA, and dedication to patients. The entire BOA membership is invited to nominate individuals. The BOA Executive Group will consider nominations and recommend up to four candidates for endorsement by the BOA Council. Recipients will be presented with a certificate by the President at the Annual Congress.
