The British Orthopaedic Trainee Association (BOTA) is appalled by the error that has affected the lives of many trainees applying for ST3 training within the medical specialties across the country. As a trainee organisation we stand with those affected by this situation. 

 

Applying for further training within Trauma and Orthopaedics also occurs through national recruitment process and we can imagine the anger and anxiety that candidates can be feeling at present. 

 

BOTA supports every effort made by the Royal College of Physicians and partner organisations including the British Medical Association to resolve this situation as soon as possible and will continue to monitor all developments closely.
