In this section we try to document where the person has which influence.

Notes on the influence fields

Often people are present in various fields, but there presence can't be connected to specific actors (e.g. it is often senseless to connect the media presence of politicians to particular newspapers). We use this section to document these unspecific, but nonetheless important presences.
Thornton co-authored a report for the think tank Reform on failures in the NHS (e.g. child deaths as a result of midwife shortages) which received some media coverage.
