Calling all patients, hand therapists and surgeons
Share your stories with us and get involved with Hands Re:Worked!
The BSSH is starting a crowdfunder project to produce a coffee-table book entitled Hands Re:worked – an exposé of hands following surgery.
The book we are planning to produce will be a celebration of patients who have recovered from injury or other problems affecting the hand and the teams of professionals who treated them. We have a number of everyday and famous faces who have agreed to donate their surgical journey and photographs. The book will showcase their story, the impact of their condition or injury and the benefit of their treatment accompanied by professional photographs illustrating these hands in their everyday work, recreation and environment.
In producing this book we aim to:
- Improve the visibility of hand surgery as a speciality and promote its importance, as we wish to show case the benefits gained from specialist treatment.
- Highlight the huge burden that problems affecting the hand place on society, business, patients and their families.
- Celebrate the charitable work of the BSSH in the UK and abroad.
The proceeds of the book will serve to continue the work of the BSSH and hopefully kickstart our next project to build a specialist Hand Surgery Unit in an underprivileged country. The crowdfunding campaign will launch on the 14th October 2021 which is when we will accept pre-orders for the books. There will also be a number of other unique rewards up for grabs.
The Crowdfunding page can be viewed at [link coming soon]. If you want to be involved as a patient, surgeon or donate a possible reward please contact our secretariat team. Or if you simply want to buy a copy of the book, watch the crowdfunding page on launch day – 14 October 2021 at 13:00.
