Each day there are increasing pressures on Otorhinolaryngologists in the U.K to be more than just competent clinicians – service delivery forms a large part of the working day for the average U.K. ORL specialist. With the current sad state of economic affairs, I suspect that even more pressure will be put on departments to maintain a high quality service with even greater financial restrictions. Both revalidation and the European Working Time Directive have also had a huge impact on the way we deliver service whilst also ensuring that knowledge and expertise are maintained. This issue has some interesting articles discussing aspects of service delivery as well as the usual good quality review articles.

You will notice that there has been a significant change to the Editorial board and I hope to gradually increase the size of the Editorial board. Professor Patrick Bradley has kindly agreed to join as secretary to the board and I am sure his experience will be invaluable in helping to continue to move the journal forward. Steven Powell has taken over from Shane Lester as section Editor for trainee matters.

I am sure you will agree that Anil Banerjee has done a splendid job over the last couple of years as Editor in Chief of the journal and I would like to thank him for all his work during that time. I hope you enjoy this issue and would encourage you to continue submitting articles to The Otorhinolaryngologist. I welcome any comments or suggestions which can be sent to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
