What is it?
Up to two financial awards made to an individual or team to aid a research project or to help fund travel costs as part of a study or practice development (up to a maximum of £1000 but each award to be decided upon by BADS council). In all cases, the project must be aimed at improving day surgery, either within the UK or abroad. A precondition of the educational grant is that those who receive it will attend the a BADS Day Surgery Conference and present the outcomes of their project so that their experience can be shared.
Who can apply?
Applications are open ONLY to BADS members (an application received from a non-member will not be considered). The award is open to any member of the multidisciplinary team or a whole team who wish to be considered for financial assistance. One award will be made available to doctors and one to nursing staff and allied health professionals.
