Currently the national news is full of articles and reports about doctors and the planned strike (the first strike since 1975) over the pension reforms. It would appear that the press has little sympathy with the apparently ‘highly paid’ medical profession. No doubt the recent articles in the press pertaining to the relationship of the media tycoons and the politicians running our country would explain why there seems to be a much better representation to the public of why doctors should take the ‘hit’ on pensions rather than explaining the relatively sparse ‘perks’ that are available for highly trained individuals doing important jobs, with the pension probably being the most important one. Recent year-end financial reports of most NHS Trusts and the need to ‘sweat assets’ makes more gloomy reading for the average hospital doctor.

However, we did not enter medicine for financial targets etc and I hope that reading the excellent articles in this issue will help remind you of why ORL-HNS is such a great subject and a fantastic job. I am delighted with the quality of articles that are being submitted to the journal – keep them coming please! Most of the Editorial team will be at BACO this year so if you have any ideas for the journal please do not hesitate to contact one of us, otherwise as usual please send me any comments, by email, to This email address is being protected from spambots.
