Dr. Gordon Skinner

I have been watching this site since Dr.Gordon Skinner died and as far as I can see it has come to a standstill. The number of people registered is now 5,346 and has been since before he died.

After receiving my Harmony Magazine I was thrilled to see the site once again mentioned but to my dismay the numbers registered were still 5,346.

I presume the site cannot be used because of his death and hoped someone else would have taken it over, possibly Dr. Afshan Ahmed?

Dr Skinner wrote: " It seems to us that the only way forward is to form a World Thyroid Register with at least around 50,000 signatories. ...."

It would be interesting to find out exactly what is happening as the Register was so important to Dr. Skinner and seems to have been forgotten. I am sure many people have registered but as the numbers were put in by the website manager (I assume Dr. Skinner) then they have not been increased.

Hopefully I am completely on the wrong track and someone can put me on the right one?

Yes. Dr Skinner is sadly missed. This link is self-explanatory and extract:
