Welcome to a new look for our email service. We hope to

our existing "in SE1" printed publication and the
"London SE1" website.

Let us know what you think of the changes. The address
for your comments, complaints and suggestions is

[ Our London...Our Vote ]

This Thursday a free exhibition opens in
the.gallery@oxo at Oxo Tower Wharf aiming to lift the
lid on the London elections and how the new Mayor and
Assembly will affect Londoners. The exhibition will
reveal the facts behind the hype and the politics
behind the personalities. See

[ Debating moral dilemmas in modern medicine ]

Moral and ethical dilemmas faced by today's healthcare
professionals - and, increasingly, by the public - are
the subjects to be tackled at a public debate taking
place at Southwark Cathedral on 13 April. Two eminent
speakers, Bruce Charlton, lecturer in psychology at
Newcastle School of Medicine, and Peter Budetti,
Director of the Institute of Public Health,
Northwestern University, Chicago, will be joined by
three panellists: Rabbi Julia Neuburger, Chief
Executive of the King's Fund, Professor Mike Richards
of King's College who leads the Government's cancer
initiative and Professor Martin McKee from London
School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. 

The public is invited to join the debate at Southwark
Cathedral on Thursday 13 April from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.

[ Keep up with SE1 press coverage ]

There seems to be a newspaper article extolling the
virtues of the South Bank as a place to live, work and
visit almost every day at the moment. We've been
tracking SE1 press coverage since last autumn and we've
compiled a page of links to articles on newspaper
websites. Check out
