The conference hosted by the Salisbury District Hospital burns team, gave burn specialists the opportunity to hear about the latest techniques and revolutionary treatments being used in Salisbury and other units and centres and share best practice on burn prevention and support.

Eunan Tiernan, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and Head of the Burns Unit said: "To host an international conference of this nature is a real accolade for us, and reinforces our position as a leading burns unit in this country. Major advances in burn care are taking place all the time and it’s important that specialists are able to hear about best practice worldwide and use new techniques and treatments that could benefit their patients."

The conference was opened by Peter Hill, Interim Chief Executive at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust.

Peter Hill said: " It was a real pleasure to welcome delegates from home and abroad and an opportunity for them to attend a prestigious conference in one of the most beautiful cathedral cities in this country. It also gave us an opportunity to showcase the excellent work that takes place here locally and recognise the achievements and experience of our own burns team. "
