About us


IMG 0311


I would like to introduce you to WelshBone, an organisation set up by Orthopaedic Surgeons in Wales to inspire and promote education and research. In 2013 with the support of the British Orthopaedics Trainees Association (BOTA) , Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSed) and Cardiff University, we have organised our first annual showcase event SWOTs.

The aim of the South Wales Orthopaedics Training Showcase (SWOTs) is to showcase Trauma and Orthopaedics as a specialty to junior doctors and medical students, in order to raise its profile and create greater attraction for the specialty. It is also to showcase the high standard of training produced by the Welsh Orthopaedics training. 

Furthermore, with the help of Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University we have developed SWORN , a network which will guide and facilitate scientific research projects in South Wales. We are not a charity, but would like to help promote research and education in Wales. Therefore we welcome donations from anyone who would like to support our organisation.
