Welcome to the first issue of 2017. We are very grateful to you for continuing to send in high quality papers; we accept original research, reviews, case reports, audits and teaching viva articles, so please do keep them coming!
As always please do let Francis Vaz or I know if you have any suggestions for the journal. If any of you would like to join the panel of reviewers please contact either Francis or myself. The on line access for the CPD part of the journal continues to be an important part of the journal and I encourage you to try it out.
With best wishes,
Editor in Chief
