We are hugely saddened to share the news of the passing of Tim on 31st March 2020. He was a wonderful colleague and friend and a true expert in our field. Tim’s family have set up a tribute web page for him, so that people can have a central place to gather and leave messages/ pictures/ thoughts. They have also chosen the British Heart Foundation if people want to make a contribution, as it is such a worthy cause and is so relevant to Tim and his family.
