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.
We've said that we wish to resolve issues with Dr Holt swiftly and
amicably, and this is best done through dialogue. However, your report is
inaccurate. Great Ormond Street Hospital did employ the doctors in the
Haringey community service, but we did not run the service or set funding
levels. Great Ormond Street only ran the service from April 2008.
