    Isn't Dr Abbot also the one who writes their brilliant research summaries?

    I would like to thank him too for all that he has done for us. I hope he has a long, healthy and happy retirement.

    Is anyone replacing him? MERUK, quietly do good work and I do hope this continues.

    Great! Shall we both delete our posts on the issue? :)

    I've just deleted mine (and will delete this one once you've seen it).

    I spoke to Neil this morning

    He isn't being replaced by a new person in post - his role is being spread around the existing team: Vance Spence, Sue Waddle etc

    Neil will also continue to contribute to MERUK research matters in a voluntary capacity

    So it's not a complete retirement!

    I too would like to thank him for his sterling work, and send him my good wishes. I have seen various things from him over the years, I recall.

    Perhaps you could point him to this thread to see our messages?

    Does this mean that MERUK will no longer have a presence on the CMRC?
