On behalf of the Scottish Pathways Association (SPA), I would like to offer a sincere thank you to Dr Ali El-Ghorr (Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN)) for over a decade of contribution to the work of the SPA including pre-runners to the current organisation. Ali is retiring from public service to pursue his personal interests including plans to master his fishing skills. Ali’s enthusiasm, knowledge and fantastic sense of humor will be sadly missed on the professional arena by all who have had the pleasure working with him. We wish him all the best with new ventures and thank him again for all his hard work and contribution.
