Injury Epidemiology and Prevention Research

Injury Research Group goes to Buckingham Palace


Professor Denise Kendrick and Dr Elizabeth Orton from the Division of Primary Care in the School of Medicine, Dr Michael Watson from the School of Health Sciences and Sarah Quilty from Nottingham City Council were invited to Buckingham Palace on 25 May 2017 for a garden party to mark the centenary of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The Injury Group has collaborated with RoSPA over many years on a series of research projects, works with RoSPA on the National Accident Prevention Strategy Group and locally  on the Nottinghamshire Avoidable Injuries Group and has frequently presented their research findings at RoSPA’s annual Home Safety Congress. Over the last 100 years RoSPA has played a big part in helping to reduce deaths and injuries caused by accidents through initiatives such as the Tufty Club and Cycling Proficiency; by lobbying and campaigning for road safety laws on seat belts, drink driving and mobile phones; and recent home safety campaigns on blind cords, liquid laundry detergents and nappy sacks. It was a pleasure to join RoSPA in celebrating these achievements on what was an afternoon to remember. The weather was beautiful, the palace gardens were spectacular and the cucumber sandwiches (without the crusts, of course) were delicious!
