Don’t pass up this opportunity to nominate for this special award. The prize on offer: The recipient will get to stand up in public and finally acknowledge what people are going through. Hopefully they will then formally offer their sincere apologies to those seriously and tragically affected. Thereby initiating a sea change in policy among the wider medical profession and our health service administration.
