Guthrie Fund

In 1985 the society was bequeathed a trust fund from the estate of Mrs. M J Guthrie in the name of her husband, Douglas J Guthrie, who was himself an ENT surgeon in Scotland. Through their generosity, funding is available to support educational projects. Applications are considered by the society council at their meetings held twice a year.

Applications for Guthrie funding are now being accepted for consideration at the joint Summer meeting which is being held in Newcastle on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th May 2024. The deadline for applications is Friday 18th April 2024. All applications to be sent to
