So here is a link to the full list of silks.

A fabulous and imaginative bunch of appointments. I always feel for the deserving candidates who might not have made it through but we don’t know about them. I am just thrilled for a few people I know and am very happy to see their skills acknowledged.  There were 17 family practitioners appointed out of a total of 120.

In a particular order (understood only by me!) congratulations to –
