    In an on line British Medical Journal editorial Prof Jamie Bartram, the Company lecturer in 2015, together with co authors calls for investment in resilient water services in light of increasing threats due to climate change.  The editorial reflects on the transformative sanitation advocacy work of physicians in the 19th century and calls for the health sector to take a similar lead on lobbying for investment in climate resilient water and sanitation.  (We would add that good plumbing is an essential part of any such programmes.)
