    Hi laurence – a great blog – such interesting and useful information. I’d love to link to my site when I have it up and running which will be linking in with Kenya projects and health.

      Thanks very much Sarah, You’re welcome to link, and I’m looking forward to catching up on Kenya. I’m still doing a little lecturing and examining at Brookes and have one or two other projects on the go….
      All the best

    Hi – just found this – looks like you have lots of useful info here – have bookmarked it for a thorough read. Ever do workshops a bit further north (Cumbria)?!

      Hi Val, Thanks very much, I have attempted to post articles of interest, updated regularly, on practical topics. I run small group workshops at the practice, have done some stuff for GOsC in the North in the past but will let you know if I’m planning to get up that way. You’ll find some more info on research etc on the website itself, or by accessing the Greenhill Practice page on the blog.
      Kind regards
      Laurence (BCNO 1984)
