Dr Mahadeva Steps Down

Today the Alpha-1 Alliance has published a news item.  It starts “Dr Ravi Mahadeva has resigned as Chair of the Alpha-1 Alliance due to a conflict of interest in relation to his work with NHS England’s Specialised Respiratory Disease Clinical Reference Group (CRG) and the ongoing campaign of the Alpha-1 Alliance.

“Dr Mahadeva has assured the Alliance of his ongoing support for improving access to health services for patients affected by Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1), which he will continue to pursue at CRG level.”
