A warm welcome to Leeds

On behalf of The Pinderfields Burn Centre

The organising committee from the burn services at Pinderfields Hospital will be delighted to welcome you to Yorkshire for the 52nd annual meeting of the British Burn Association in 2019.

We have chosen a city-centre venue for the meeting at the Queens Hotel in Leeds, with the Conference Dinner at the nearby Royal Armouries, which we hope will produce a compact and sociable meeting.

The BBA has seen generations of professionals with a passion for burn care. Our theme – ‘Passing the Torch’ – invites us to consider how best we can train and enthuse our future colleagues and successors to ever better achievements and standards of care.

Our invited speakers will reflect this theme.

See you in May.
