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.
Can I ask this simple question?
Will UK graduates qualifying as Vets and Dentists, the majority of who will go into private practice, though possibly not abroad, receive the same attention and "conscription" as that being considered for our Uk Medical Graduates? And why stop there? What about Accountants or Lawyers?
