Delete all and insert?[edit]

Dear Fellow Wikipedians, I am a staff member of The BMJ and am trying to simplify and shorten the wikipedia entries of 3 of our key editors and standardise the sections as Education, Career, Other. Two of these editors have an existing wikipedia page, and one does not. These are Fiona Godlee, Kamran Abbasi, Theo Bloom (the latter of which would be a new entry). I would like to replace the current Fiona Godlee entry with the following, and have been advised by another Wikipedia editor to put this here on the Talk page first. Who needs to check this and when can I edit the substantive page--or does someone else need to do that? David Allen, The bMJ
