Welcome to London 2017 - New Technologies for Better Burn Care

On behalf of the organising committee at Chelsea and Westminster Burns Service we would like to welcome you to the 50th scientific meeting of the BBA on the theme of New Technologies for Better Burn Care.

We have an international panel of invited speakers to present their experience in the development and use of emerging technologies in burns care, and to chair the presentations. As a reflection of the increasing emphasis on reducing post burn scar morbidity we have arranged a scar academy workshop to run during the meeting on the Friday, which is free to attend.

This is the first BBA to take place in the centre of London, and we are delighted to have secured the historic and prestigious Royal College of Surgeons for the event, which will include the inaugural “ Matilda” lecture – further information is available on the website.

We will host a networking drinks reception in the Hunterian Museum at the College on Wednesday evening.

We look forward to you being involved and enjoying the meeting in London

"I am honoured in my role as ambassador for the British Burn Association to introduce the first Matilda lecture.

I am delighted to continue supporting the role of the British Burn Association and its efforts to promote burn care education, research and prevention in the field  of burn injury"

Since then Claudia has been a passionate advocate for enforcing tighter legislation on the quality of these costumes to try and avoid further accidents in future, and wants to support us all to continue to develop new technologies to advance burn care.
