BCACF News – Autumn 2022

Hi everyone,

Another season arrives with hope that we can resume normal lives with COVID. It’s been a trying time for everyone, but especially for the medical fraternity, and patients waiting for pain relief through surgery. Let’s hope that another COVID variant and subsequent wave doesn’t interrupt our recovery. We are flying the Ukranian flag this edition in support of those brave people.
