The 2021 Severn T&O Plastering Course will be taking place this year on Monday 18th October, 9am -4pm at The Academy, Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton. It promises to be a fun and highly interactive course with opportunities to learn the basic principles of plaster application and also work on lots of practical skills. We aim to keep the course free of charge for attendees. As there are limited places, the course is initially open only to Severn Deanery Core Surgical Trainees, and places will be offered on a first-come first-serve basis.
