The British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS) would like to express its condolences following the devastating earthquake that struck parts of Turkey and Syria. Whilst BAPS does not have an independent acute response team, our members have expertise in managing paediatric Trauma and BAPS has an active International Affairs Committee. Hence, we would be happy to be contacted for advice. Contact can be via the office ([email protected] ) who will direct the enquiry to the appropriate member. Another site we can recommend the Save a Child forum at Save A Child – Referrers.
