Western Branch Meeting Hazel Carruthers
On 12th January this year 20 members of the Western branch joined together for its AGM and branch meeting at the Women's Hospital in Liverpool. During the AGM all the important decisions and information from head oďŹƒce were discussed in detail and voted on. We also asked for new volunteers to join the happy band of brothers (and sisters) ,who all work tirelessly during the year to keep the branch running meticulously and ensure all the loyal members who make the eďŹ€ort to support us at meetings are given the CPD they deserve.
Business details over, we then had the chance to browse and purchase goods on oďŹ€er from Ben Stead (Canonbury), James Cree (Algeos) and Anne from Prosser Uniforms. As a branch we are all particularly grateful to Ben and James for giving up their Sunday afternoons to support us. They are a credit to the relevant companies they work for and we would like to thank them for giving up their time for us.
After a well-deserved break we then were treated to a very interesting talk from the prominent consultant foot and ankle
Podiatry Review Vol 71:3
surgeon Mr Andy Molloy who works from BMI University Hospital, Aintree in Liverpool. His informative lecture gave us an insight into the latest surgical techniques and devices used to rectify foot deformities by the orthopaedic foot surgeons in his team. He also explained when surgery would be recommended as an intervention to help our own patients and his patients continued future comfort.
The meeting concluded there until our next gathering on 13th April
