Au revoir to Dr Adrija Datta who has left MFS after more than three years as one of clinical research fellows and has moved on to a new role as an obstetrics and gynaecology staff grade doctor at Walsall Manor Hospital, as he continues his training to become a consultant.

Farewell also to Becky Cooves who leaves the finance team at MFS to embark on a new career and begin her training in adult nursing.  Becky originally joined MFS in 2005 as one of the weekend admin team while she was still at school.  Who knows? . . . She may be back at MFS in a clinical role in the future!
