BHS Annual General Meeting

It is with great pleasure that I announce that our AGM which was held on the 3rd of March was a great success. We discussed The British Hernia society’s charitable status, which was approved. A lot of effort and hard work for this and our constitution, I would like to thank our incoming Treasurer, Stella Smith for leading the process as well as the Board.
