Who are we?

Tony Marson is a professor of neurology who specialises in epilepsy. Tony is the coordinating editor of the Cochrane epilepsy group, and is the chief investigator of the national Standard And New Antiepileptic Drug (SANAD II) study.

Mike Pearson is a professor of clinical evaluation and set up (and was Director of) The Clinical Effectiveness and Evaluation Unit (CEEu) of the Royal College of Physicians. Over a decade the CEEu had an established track record instituting a series of national audits including myocardial infarction, stroke, carotid endarterectomy, evidence based prescribing, COPD, lung cancer, continence, inflammatory bowel disease, blood transfusion, and palliative care. Each of these has been successful and has achieved national coverage in excess of most other audits in the UK and beyond.
