The BDA has 13 Branches geographically spread across the UK who act as the regional representatives of the BDA.
Branches support members at a local level by providing excellent CPD and networking events, alongside a local focus for BDA activity and communication.
Purpose of Branches:
- Provide local opportunities for networking with a variety of members from different disciplines and organisations
- Provide excellent CPD opportunities in the form of topical events/seminars and workshops.
- Provide educational updates or discussion forums on non-specialist clinical/professional issues of general interest;
- Promote the role of the BDA in the region, encouraging non-members especially students to join the BDA membership community.
- Facilitate cross-departmental collaboration on local/regional projects;
- Provide two-way communication between the BDA and members within that region;
- Provide a link with regional Specialist Groups and/or subgroups.
