2017 Annual Society Meeting

The 16th annual meeting of the BRS will be held on 19th May 2017 in Jersey. It promises to be an educational day with internationally-renowned speakers confirmed to present on common rhinological and facial plastics subjects. Prof Philippe Herman from Paris will be sharing his extensive experience in endoscopic management of benign sinonasal neoplasms. Ben Hartley, Valerie Lund and Shahram Anari will guide us through the management of everyday nasal obstruction across the patient age spectrum and Peter Andrews will head a round-table discussion on complications in rhinoplasty.

This year we also intend to hold the inaugral BRS social event which will take the form of a ceilidh/salsa evening with hot buffet and seafood. This will take place on teh evening of the AGM (19th May) at the St Brelade Bay hotel on one of the nicest bays on Jersey. The cost is only £30 per person and this will include transport from and back to the meeting venue. You can sign up for the social event at the time of registration for the meeting.
