We are proud on our collaborative partners
The British Laryngological Association (BLA) is a membership society which aims to achieve advancement in laryngology for the benefit of the public through research, education and training. The BLA promotes all medical, surgical and rehabilitative aspects of laryngology and holds meetings at which those interested in laryngology are able to meet, discuss clinical practice and present clinical and basic scientific research.
The BLA takes an overall interest in the development of laryngology (the management of airway, voice, swallowing disorders, including related sciences and health promotion) in Great Britain. Special reference is given to the needs of those in training and the public at large. The BLA also provides advice on laryngology to ENT-UK, the Department of Health and other organisations and scientific bodies.
The BLA is allied to ENT-UK which is the professional association for British Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons and other related professionals.
