A welcome to BAPO message from our President

Michelle Wyatt, BAPO President

Michelle Wyatt

President of BAPO

It is a great honour to be the BAPO President and I welcome you to our updated website. A considerable amount of time and effort has been invested in its production and I would like to thank the BAPO council and all others involved for this. I hope you find it accessible, helpful and informative.

Paediatric ENT has moved forward with great strides since BAPO was founded in the 1990s. BAPO in 2022 is a diverse and inclusive group of professionals and we want to thank our current and future members for this.

We are proud to now have a BAPO juniors section and there will be a session focused on issues relevant to trainees and their trainers at next year’s annual meeting in London on September 14th and 15th  For any organisation to stay relevant it needs to be receptive to new ideas and suggestions. As such we want to hear from you about how we work and what we should be involved with. Please do get in touch with us via the contact page of this website.

All good wishes,

Michelle Wyatt
