Prof. Gillian Leng, deputy chief executive at The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and a visiting professor at King’s College London.

Dr Rob Cook, clinical director of Bazian, an Economist Intelligence Unit business. Bazian provides the weekly critique of health-related news for NHS Behind the Headlines service.

Toby Lasserson, senior editor at Cochrane, the global independent network that gathers and summarises the best evidence from research.
