Event information
The BAPRAS Celtic Meeting is a two-day event dedicated to those with an interest in plastic and reconstructive surgery. 

This year, with an aim to reduce delegate fees for travel and accommodation, we are pleased to announce that BAPRAS and BAAPS collaborate to organise the BAPRAS Celtic meeting with the BAAPS Regional Aesthetic day in Dundee, this September. The BAAPS Day will be taking place on the Thursday daytime with the Celtic Meeting starting on Thursday evening through to the Friday.

The first day of the Celtic meeting has a later start and consists of innovative talks, followed by a lovely dinner in the evening. The dinner is the perfect chance to network and to get to know fellow colleagues. 
The second day includes invited guest speakers, paper presentations and debates on hot topics.
It’s the first time we’ve combined events for the BAAPS and Celtic Meeting to make it easier to attend both and it would be great to see you all there. We encourage you to take advantage of both events and join us in Dundee! 

Please note: You will have to register to each meeting separately. Find out more about the BAAPS Regional Aesthetic Training Day
