Re: Has Cochrane lost its way?

The print version is missing a paragraph ( see below) from the ‘corporation ‘ section. It makes less sense without this para, because the first mention of ‘ grimshaw’ is in the ‘ where next’.
There’re is no need to make this more confusing than it already is !!

Jeremy Grimshaw, who was co-chair of the Cochrane board from 2010 to 2014 recalls opposition to increased central spending. “There were people who argued that we should be splitting the money between the review groups fractionally, according to their contribution,” he says. “If we’d have done that each group would have gained a small amount that would not have helped their own sustainability and left Cochrane’s central team at risk.”
