Wednesday 24 January, 2018

Mr Simon Roberts, Consultant Orthopaedic & Sports Injury Surgeon, Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.

20 years of sports injuries

I had a slightly unusual route into medicine having started a maths degree at Cambridge before sneaking across into the medical school thanks to the patronage of the rugby club’s president. I then transferred to Oxford’s clinical school before training in general Orthopaedics on Oswestry’s programme, supplemented by travelling fellowships in sports injuries in Europe & the USA as well as a year in Australia. I have been a consultant in “Orthopaedic & Sports Injury Surgery” in Oswestry for nearly 20 years, since long before “Sport & Exercise Medicine” became a recognized medical specialty in its own right. I am now a Council member of the intercollegiate Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine, & the immediate past president of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma & Arthroscopy Association.

Approximate timings for the evening are:
reception drinks served from 7pm, meal (provided by CNWMS educational grant) 7:30pm and presentation 8:30—9:30pm

If you would like to attend please email postgraduate.education@nhs.net or phone ext. 4727 to register your attendance.
