…with the excellent Newport-Bermuda Race in June including brief trip to Connecticut to prepare boat.   Lecturing at the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (FFLM) development training on Injury Classification. This was part of a very useful weekend exploring the use of digital (and other) photography in clinical forensic medicine and putting it into the clinical, legal and regulatory context.  Good to see Sam Evans from Cardiff with whom I have been collaborating for the last couple of years.   Have just completed and published with a multiprofessional group  ‘Guideline for photography of cutaneous marks and injuries: a  multi-professional perspective’ in the Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine 2014, Vol. 37, No. 1-2 : Pages 3-12).  Hopefully this will assist in improving the quality of the (sometimes) uninterpretable images out forward as evidence in some cases. Have been asked to review a number of historic abuse (sexual, physical, torture) cases in a number of settings.  Good meeting with London Assembly Members in company with some Custody Nurse Practitioners  to discuss delivery of custodial healthcare.  Updated, with Cathy Cooke, national medication management guidelines for police custody on behalf of the FFLM.  Journal of Forensic & Legal Medicine welcomes two associated editors, Chris Milroy – forensic pathologist from Canada and forensic physician, Patrick Chariot  from France. The World Forensic Festival (http://www.wff2014korea.org) organisation is moving ahead rapidly and the World Police Medical Officers day on October 16th in Seoul has been arranged with 26 oral presentations from a wide variety of countries on a wide variety of (often controversial) subjects.  There will be a concurrent poster exhibition. Have been reviewing a number of police and prison deaths in custody.  Am honoured to have been appointed Honorary Consultant in the Paediatric and Adult Accident and Emergency Departments at St George’s Hospital. The new (3rd) edition of Symptoms & Signs of Substance Misuse should be published in September.  A new report ‘Keeping London’s children safe’  published by the London Assembly reviews the Metropolitan Police Service’s role in safeguarding children. Peter Green and I contributed to this report (at https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/default/files/Keeping%20London%27s%20children%20safe_0.pdf).   Also an interesting ‘Learning the Lessons’ publication from the IPCC reflecting increasing deployment of Taser.
