Statement on events in Gaza, Israel and the Middle East

The British Orthopaedic Association is extremely saddened by the events in Gaza and Israel and our thoughts are with all those affected, and we echo the sentiments expressed by the Royal Colleges of Edinburgh and England.

We understand that our medical colleagues are working in extremely challenging circumstances and we wish to remind our members of the resources freely available on our website to support surgeons throughout the world who are working in military conflict.

The Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Edinburgh has resources on providing support in a humanitarian crisis, which can be found here, and an Introduction to Humanitarian Healthcare course which is free to access for all.

Should any of our members wish to look at ways to support the following links may be of assistance:
