Dear Colleagues,

The North of England Otolaryngology Society meeting will take place in Liverpool on the 19th of October, and Ray Clarke (President) would love to welcome colleagues from Ireland! The event is to be held at the Liverpool Medical Institute, and Professor Terry Jones has already confirmed his talk - 'The Management of Oropharynx Cancer in the HPV Era'. The conference will also feature short papers, and Ray would very much welcome abstracts from our trainees. The program is currently being developed ... details are to be found at:


Do try and make it!


To Members IOSHNS

Dear Colleagues

It is with sadness we report the death of Professor Michael Cinnamond, retired Paediatric Otolaryngologist and former Professor of the Department of ENT, Belfast.

He is fondly remembered as an inspiring trainer who developed paediatric airway surgery in Northern Ireland and encouraged his trainees to look beyond these islands to fellowships in USA and Canada.
He supported trainees of all backgrounds before equality and diversity became fashionable. His dedication and commitment to his patients knew no bounds. He will be greatly missed by his former colleagues and trainees.

Cate Scally MD FRCS(ORL)
