About the event

"Not your typical soft tissue emergency"

This year's autumn meeting will cover some of the more unusual soft tissue problems that soft tissue surgeons have to deal with such as dental or ocular problems, facial reconstructions after trauma, tracheostomies and stick injuries. Tim has lined up some fantastic national and international speakers who will share their expertise and knowledge and who will no doubt stimulate plenty of debate among the delegates. The meeting is held in the four star Swindon Mariott hotel and the social program will include the gala dinner on the Friday night.
