Chris Cates retires

We recently held a lovely online farewell gathering for our Coordinating Editor, Chris Cates. Chris has retired after being involved with the group for 25 years. Chris wrote one of the very first reviews published by Airways. Chris will continue to give advice and support to colleagues as he becomes Emeritus Co-ordinating Editor at Cochrane and Emeritus Reader at SGUL.

It was fantastic to bring together colleagues past and present and we look forward to a 'real' send-off in person when we are able. Chris touched on memories from his time at Cochrane and what makes a good question.  Chris was always coming up with questions and pondering the answer, so it was both fitting and stimulating!

Wishing you all the best for the future Chris and congratulations on all you have achieved and for how human you were whilst achieving it.
