Welcome to BASK Professional
Welcome to the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK) Professional users home page.
Our website provides information relating to all aspects of knee surgery to help patients, carers and other interested groups. The focus of this part of the site is to provide information geared towards the healthcare professional, most of which is publicly available; however, within the site are sections only available to registered BASK members including on-line access to The Knee Journal. Further information is available on the Public part of the BASK site, which has been written specifically with patients and carers in mind.

Unfortunately due to the situation with Covid-19 the BASK executive have taken the decision to postpone the spring meeting at the Mathematical Institute in Oxford. Many National and International meetings have been cancelled due to the medical risks we think this is the best course. We are looking to see if the meeting can be rescheduled but at present we are unable to give any details.
For those who have paid for registration this will be refunded in full to the payment card you used to register online by the events team, it may take 3 to 4 days for the refund to appear in your account.
We would advise you to cancel any accommodation you may have booked as soon as possible. If you booked via the accommodation link on the BASK website please contact 'TSC Hotels' as soon as possible by email: email@example.com or phone 01335 345655.
