Dan’s Fund for Burns, recognising the potential value of the Burns Game, an innovative game for hospital staff, developed by Focus Games Ltd in partnership with the British Burn Association and Birmingham City University, is donating one copy of the game to each of the 26 Burns Units in the UK (both large and small). It is hoped that this game can add extra challenges for Burns Unit staff by making learning fun to deliver a deeper understanding of the many complex issues involved with burn injuries.

On behalf of the European Club for Paediatric Burns we would like to invite you to participate in the 8th World Congress, to be held in Birmingham on 21-23 June 2017.
We are very pleased that the Congress is coming to the UK this year, having previously been held in a number of faraway destinations including Australia and South Africa.
This is an ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in all things paediatric and to interact with worldwide experts including paediatric surgeons, anaesthetists and intensivists along with the rest of the multi-professional burn team.
This will be an interactive event with new features and ideas that you can take back to your own services, which will be all the better for your contributions.
