A bit about us...
The British Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology (BSIN) started life as a special interest group called Neuromonitoring UK, formed by the late Christine Reber in 2009, with members principally from a background in Clinical Neurophysiology, Medical Physics or Biomedical Sciences.
Membership steadily increased and in 2015 the group was incorporated and became a company limited by guarantee. As the demand for neuromonitoring continued to grow at a staggering rate it was clear that we needed to evolve to meet the needs of our membership. In 2021 under the diligent leadership of our chair Lindsay Gripton, a major milestone was reached. The membership were consulted and approved that we rename the group to become the British Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology (BSIN). As BSIN we are now better equipped to deliver our aims in supporting our members and develop expertise in our specialism within the UK.
We represent all those involved in providing IONM, at any level of experience, whether that be as part of the NHS or in the private sector. We also warmly welcome colleagues from the wider surgical team and medical equipment suppliers as we believe that a multidisciplinary membership increases the knowledge and expertise within the group which can only enhance the scope and depth of our learning and sharing of best practice.
The aims of the society are to:
The British Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology is run by a friendly and approachable executive committee who volunteer their time to manage the organisation and who work hard to ensure it meets its objectives.
Executive committee members are elected democratically periodically. Look out for adverts for open roles on the jobs page. If you would like more information on being involved in the BSIN please e-mail the Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The British Society of Intraoperative Neurophysiology is indebted to the medical equipment companies who have, by sponsorship, ensured that there is an element of financial stability. This stability allow our organisation to hold Annual Scientific Meetings, smaller study days and develop online education and training initiatives. A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors!
