Update – message from the new co-editors

A message from Lizzie Boulden and Charley Turton

Dear blog readers,

We write by way of introduction and to pass our sincere thanks to outgoing editor, Rory Badenoch, who over the past three years has done a stellar job co-ordinating the blog in collaboration with John-Paul Swoboda. Thank you, Rory.

John-Paul remains in post as editor-in-chief.

As incoming co-editors, we join you at a strange time (amid the COVID-19 pandemic) and, as such, we know that you will be relying more than ever on online resources and content. We hope to bring you information, insight and much-needed distraction.

Please be on the lookout for further resources and features from 12KBW’s Clinical Negligence Team over the coming weeks and months, in the form of webinars, Q&As, and panel discussions, which we will keep you updated on.

As always, we welcome your comments and feedback. Please feel free to get involved and stay connected.

Best wishes,

Lizzie and Charley
