For healthcare professionals

We are a small society of healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with patellofemoral conditions; including physiotherapists, surgeons and radiologists.

 

Our aim is to improve care for patients, by facilitating education and training in this area. We also develop national guidelines and research studies relating to patellofemoral conditions.

 

If you would like to join the society then membership details can be found here.
