Joint Action: The Orthopaedic Research Appeal of the BOA

We are grateful to our BOA members, patients and members of the public who have fundraised for and donated to Joint Action (the BOA’s orthopaedic research appeal) research grants and encourage you to continue to support us as we invest these funds in new ways for the benefit of research into Trauma and Orthopaedics. 

We raise funds for research infrastructure activities, in particular a resource to provide research methodology support to develop clinical trials in  trauma and orthopaedics – at the University of York, called the BOA Orthopaedic Surgery Research Centre (BOSRC).

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to issue Orthocards (new or replacements). Please rest assured we did not take this decision lightly, rather on grounds of economic viability. We suggest that you ask your GP or consultant for a letter of confirmation but we cannot guarantee this will be effective.

If you have any other queries about the above, please don’t hesitate to email us at
