Adrian Richards Highly Commended BMA book Awards

Medical Director of Cosmetic Courses Adrian Richards and co-author Hywel Dafydd were also highly commended at the prestigious BMA Medical Book Awards 2015 for the  2nd edition of Adrian Richards best selling book ‘Key Notes on Plastic Surgery’.

The BMA Medical Book Awards take place annually to recognise outstanding contributions to medical literature. The winners are chosen by an expert panel of judges who take into consideration each books originality, applicability to the audience and production quality.

Adrian wrote the first edition of “Key Notes on Plastic Surgery” in 1999, while sitting his final plastic surgery exams. Unable to find a suitably concise general plastics textbook for those revising for the FRCS (Plast), he decided he’d write one himself. Mr Dafydd, a talented young surgeon who’s recently travelled the world learning the latest surgical techniques, helped Mr Richards update the 2nd edition adding more up-to-date content, leading to the 2nd edition being highly commended at the 2015 BMA’s in the surgery category.

Our team is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive service we can to our delegates both during your training and afterwards. We aim to continually improve and develop the training on offer so to be recognised for our hard work over the years is absolutely fantastic.
