Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
I imagine that among the people that are "hard to reach" are the
housebound elderly and the people that do not want to come for preventive
care. I am unsure about the evidence base for current targets as the
trials are based on mobile cooperative people and are therefore rather
distorted. Could anyone help motivate me further on this point? I can then
try to "control blood sugar" in absolutely everyone with a clear heart.
Will the Health Service reimburse the rent for the extra room space
that we will require in order to place the lockable cupboards that will be
necessary to hide all the "schoolwork" that we don't want the inspectors
to see? Or will the inspections not be along the lines of school
inspections after all?
