Patients' accounts of being removed from their general practitioner's list: qualitative study

BMJ 2003; 327 doi: (Published 03 July 2003) Cite this as: BMJ 2003;327:26

We mixed up some references in this research paper by Tim Stokes and colleagues when we converted our usual style to the format required for this special issue (14 June, pp 1316-9). References 8-11 are correctly printed below. Also, the participants' quotes failed to be clearly differentiated from the main text, which made for difficult reading. In the authors' affiliation section, “practice” twice managed to gain a superfluous “a.” All these errors occurred only in the printed version of the article. The revised references are:
