The Emergency Airway - Front of Neck Access

IMPORTANT UPDATE :

As a responsible and caring organisation the safety of the BLA members, delegates and staff, as well as all surgeons and the patients they serve are the highest priority. Minimising risk and the challenges presented by the emerging COVID-19 pandemic means that we are taking decisions that ensure that our doctors stay close to their hospitals and healthcare centers.  

The BLA has made the decision to responsibly postpone the BLA Study Day “The Emergency Airway – Front of Neck Access”  that was due to be held at the The Royal College of Surgeons of England, Monday, 30th March 2020.

Once a new date for the course has been confirmed and finalised we will advise accordingly
