“I’m delighted to be able to announce that Nathan Tavares KC has been elected (unopposed) as the Head of the Health Department. Nathan will make a great Head of the team. Eliot Woolf has been elected (also unopposed) as Deputy Head of the Health Department. That is not only a reflection of how highly they are both regarded in chambers but, perhaps more importantly, an endorsement of all the work which both Eliot and Nathan have been doing for us, as acting heads for the best part of two years.”
