British Hip Society

The British Hip Society was conceived during the 1989 Autumn meeting of the BOA when Hugh Phillips suggested the idea to Michael Freeman and Robin Ling. They were both enthusiastic and the first meeting took place at the Royal Society of Medicine during the following November. Until 2004 Vice presidents held office for two years before taking on the office of president. The First vice President was Robin Ling (Exeter). Afterwards each of the presidents noted above had served one year as vice-president. From 2004 Presidents of the British Hip society will hold office for one year having been vice-president (one year) and president-elect (one year). It is proposed they will carry on in the executive for one further year on the executive as immediate past president. In 2005 it was decided that we needed a member to run the web-site and become a member of the executive. The web-site was introduced in 1999 as part of the BOA web-site and has become a useful tool in our communication with members. Peter Kay (Wrightington) set it up and managed it until late 2004. In the Autumn of 2004 the concept of a joint meeting with other groups of people who are involved with the management of patients with diseases of the hip was introduced. Invitations were sent to NATN and the Surgical Practitioners. Malcolm Binns (Pontefract) had a list of thearthroplasty auditors who work up and down the country and they were all contacted. Clare Darrah (Norwich) with help from the BHS executive put a programme together. The first meeting went ahead emphasising the team approach that is essential in modern day working with 80 people attending the meeting in Wrightington in 2005. The AV arrangements allowed the parallel meeting to enjoy the topics in focus and the guest lecture whilst having their own programme at other times. Guest speakers included Neil Walton (Norwich),Adrian Jones (Norwich surgical assistant),Martin Pickford(AEA Technology / NJR) AndyCrosbie (MHRA),Mick Borroff (ABHI / DePuy),Paul Pynsent( Birmingham),Graham Knights (Hastings, surgical practitioner),Prof Damien Griffin (Coventry), Mrs.Susan Williams, Mr Keith Summerhayes and Mr. Peter Kay(Wrightington).
