It is with sadness that we share with you the news of the death of Simon Frostick earlier this month after a long illness. Simon was in Oxford from 1983 - 1988. His obituary can be read here.
Simon's funeral, at Chester Crematorium, and wake are to take place on Monday 2nd March and details can be found on the memorial website that his daughters have put together.
Professor Josep Trueta and his colleagues founded this society in 1950. Membership is open to all those who have spent a significant part of their training in orthopaedics in Oxford. There is an annual three day scientific conference. At its founding the following paragraph was written which reflects the Society's 'mission statement', as it would now be defined:
'As the years go by most of us feel an increasing admiration and gratitude to those who are responsible for our upbringing and we feel an increasing appreciation for your friendship and understanding among people. Some of the men that owe their orthopaedic training to the school built by Girdlestone and who feel that it provided for them not only a school but in the intellectual sense a family as well, feel the need for an organisation that will keep alive the spirit of this family" [G.Mineiro 1958].
