Event description


Bombs, Blasts and Ballistics (BBB)

A collaborative symposium between University College London Hospital (UCLH) and 256 (City of London) Field Hospital.

The aim of the symposium is to deliver a comprehensive combination of lectures and workshops to enhance the knowledge and practical skills of attending Army Reserve members and NHS colleagues in the management of the critically injured trauma patient. We will also create an environment in which our delegates can enjoy the opportunities to network and celebrate their mutual passions and different experiences of trauma and emergency care.

The symposium weekend will be held at the UCLH on the 22nd and 23rd of October 2016.

We expect to attract over a 100 delegates, the vast majority of whom will be multi-disciplinary specialising or having an interest in Acute, Critical and Emergency Medicine with a mixture of NHS and Military experience. Students of all healthcare professionals are also welcomed.

We have managed to secure both military and NHS speakers of the highest calibre to address important and clinically relevant topics within the theme of bombs, blasts and ballistics.

If you are unable to attend after you have registered please let the organiser know so that your ticket can be re-released to someone else
