By John Smith posted July 20, 2016

On behalf of the organising committee at Welsh Centre for Burns I would like to invite you to the 51st scientific meeting of the BBA.

The theme for the 2018 meeting will be “Preparing for Disaster” which I’m sure you agree is a hot topic at the moment.

We have an exciting programme planned with both UK based and international speakers confirmed who will be presenting their experience of disaster planning and management in relation to burn injuries.

The meeting will be held in The Great Hall at the New Swansea Bay University Campus.

The drinks reception will be held in the Great Hall bar and restaurant.

The annual Conference Dinner will take place in the National Waterfront Museum.

I look forward to seeing you all in the Spring.

Ar ran y pwyllgor trefnu yng Nghanolfan Llosgiadau Cymru hoffwn eich gwahodd i 51fed cyfarfod gwyddonol Cymdeithas Llosgiadau Prydain. "Paratoi am Drychineb" fydd thema'r cyfarfod yn 2018, sydd yn bwnc llosg amlwg ar hyn o bryd.

Mae gennym raglen gyffrous ar y gweill, gyda siaradwyr rhyngwladol nodedig, yn ogystal â rhai o'r DU, yn cyflwyno eu profiad o gynllunio am drychineb a gofalu am losgiadau.
