Welcome to Fergus's Medical Files
A blog is re-born. Thanks to all of you who followed Fergus on Flu; I hope you will continue with the blog in its new form.
So what will you find here? As well as original posts, I hope to give some greater detail and insights into the stories I am working on elsewhere. My role is pretty broad: to look at medical research, ethics, global disease threats and more.
The blog will also provide a discussion point for these issues and I hope you will get involved. As I made clear in the past, I am not a scientist or a doctor, but a journalist. My role is to interpret often complex scientific information and relay it to a largely lay audience. If you should find any glaring errors, I'll do my best to correct them as soon as possible.
