Hull Plastic Surgeons support the charity OPSA - Overseas Plastic Surgery Appeal.

news logoThis is a Hull based charity that has helped thousands of children with cleft lip and palate.

OPSA trustees have been involved in registered charitable work relief work oversees since 1998, after a visiting plastic surgeon to Hull suggested the formation of a small team to fly out and help operate on people with deformities such as cleft lip and palette. This was a massive success and up to 2003 the team were part of HEROPSA. Since 2003 the group formed the separate OPSA charity. OPSA aims to make overseas visits at least twice a year. During last 5 years we have visited Gujrat, Pakistan twice a year (February and October) and each time we operated on more than 120 children and adults in just seven days. We also visited India in 2010 and plan to visit again very soon.

The charity has grown and grown over the years and word of mouth has created a larger demand for our services. This makes what we do more and more vital and our trips have become more frequent. We now visit these countries twice a year when funds and political climate allow.
