ASiT’s concerns about views expressed in the Nuffield Trust report on emergency general surgeryBMJ 2016; 353 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.i2700 (Published 12 May 2016) Cite this as: BMJ 2016;353:i2700
An error was introduced by The BMJ in the second paragraph of this letter (BMJ 2016;353:i2593, doi:10.1136/bmj.i2593) during the editing process. The second sentence of this paragraph (“Importantly, the report does not state that only two of the 155 trainees studied had a special interest”) should have said that the Nuffield Trust report on emergency general surgery does not state that only two of the 155 trainees studied had general surgery as their special interest. The remaining 153 trainees declared a specialist interest within general surgery, for example, colorectal surgery. We apologise for this error.
