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.

Stop tyrannising the clinicians and let them look after patients in the way that they have been trained to do. Also stop imagining that health economists and strategists are going to be of any assistance in saving the NHS.
