BBS Reception

On Wednesday 6th June, Soft Bones UK trustees were invited to attend a parliamentary reception at Westminster to celebrate the Brittle Bone Society 50th anniversary. The event was sponsored by Lord Kevin Shinkwin and hosted by the CEO of the BBS Patricia Osborne and Vice Chairman John Phillips, and saw the presentation of the Brittle Bone Society Excellence Awards for 2018.

Alongside the awards, the main aim of the event was to highlight the excellent paediatric care patients receive, and to address the much needed improvements in the adult service for bone disorders as a whole.

We are very thankful to the Brittle Bone Society for allowing us to be involved in such a great event, which was very well attended and a great way to help raise awareness of Hypophosphatasia and the work we are doing with Soft Bones UK.
