We wish to reassure readers that the names of the patients that appeared in this article (in the results section) by Christine A Barry and colleagues (6 May, pp 1246-50) were fictitious. All patients in the study were asked for consent to use their data, with names and other identifying features such as occupation changed to preserve confidentiality. This information should have been given in the paper, and we apologise that it was left out.
