History of the AOT

The AoT beginnings . . . .

In 1988 the Leeds Senior Registrars, John Pickles (Luton) Mark Terry (Farnborough) and Malcolm Clayton (S Wales) decided to invite all the ENT SRs to a meeting.

It was an outstanding success academically and socially. In those days there were fewer than 80 SRs and many of us knew each other from the registrar circuit.

As a result of that event, I volunteered to hold the 2nd event in Nottingham in April 1989. As the single SR in my department I was a little optimistic!

In the event a good time was indeed had by all and I introduced the name AoT and became the first President.

Since then with the introduction of the SpR grade, the Association has expanded and remains healthy. I am proud to be an Honorary member.
