BBS Parliamentary Reception

BBS Parliamentary Reception

When: Wednesday 6th June 16.00 until 18.00
Where: House of Commons 

As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations, we are heading to the House of Commons in June to hold a special Parliamentary Reception sponsored by Lord Shinkwin, who has Brittle Bones.

We will present a series of BBS Achievement Awards in our 50th year, for excellence in Paediatric services, for Adult care, and research and innovation in OI.

Invitations will be sent to NHS Hospital Trusts across the UK to attend and see all the wonderful NHS staff pick up their awards.

This is where our BBS members come in…

Specialist, Multidisciplinary and continuing care for children is excellent and improving year on year and we recognise that.

BBS needs YOU to write to your MP and encourage them to attend our event, where they can learn just how positive and successful the dedicated NHS highly skilled centres of excellence has been for children with OI, and help us highlight the need for continuing care for people with OI.
