Thanks to Doctors Alex and Junaid, recruiting has now commenced at all sites. PAH and Ipswich (veterans) now have around 50 each, so RBWH and TPCH will be battling out from the delayed start.The quality of scans from novices at PAH and Ipswich has been excellent, the first round of data monitoring starts at 150 cases. No jellyfish, pneumothoraces or tamponades yet – so keep your eyes open.
