Robin Ling Michael Freeman Hugh Phillips

The British Hip Society was conceived during the 1989 Autumn meeting of the BOA when Hugh Phillips suggested the idea to Michael Freeman and Robin Ling. They were both enthusiastic and the first meeting took place at the Royal Society of Medicine during the following November.

Until 2004 Vice presidents held office for two years before taking on the office of president. The First vice President was Robin Ling (Exeter). Afterwards each of the presidents noted above had served one year as vice-president.

From 2004 Presidents of the British Hip society will hold office for one year having been vice-president (one year) and president-elect (one year). It is proposed they will carry on in the executive for one further year on the executive as immediate past president.
