Version 4 – published 31 March 2020

Please note this guidance is continually being revised to reflect the latest Government position.

The BOA strapline of “Caring for patients, supporting surgeons” has seldom seemed more apposite. In the fast changing circumstances of the past days we have been co-operating with others in producing guidance relevant to Trauma & Orthopaedic surgeons. The guidance and associated documents are naturally in a state of flux but we feel it important to keep colleagues as well informed as possible.

The coronavirus pandemic is unprecedented in recent times, and the UK’s health systems are making changes to respond to this. The BOA has been in active discussions on these issues and have pulled together guidance and information at the links below which we hope you find useful.
