    EDITOR,—I think clinicians would take a little more notice of the Rationing Agenda Group if it included more people who actually had to face sick people and their families day by day over the years. It is difficult to identify any working clinicians in the group.1

    It would be interesting to know the method of selection for members to sit in this group. King's Fund Policy Institute is presumably a registered charity—that is, receives a lot of money from the taxpayer—and its function should be more democratic.
