During a recent exercise to update their material, the authors (Hallvard Lærum and colleagues) of this Information in Practice article that was published over a year ago, discovered that some of the information they had used was wrong (BMJ 2001;323:1344-8). The one DocuLive department in the investigation that had reported having the function “obtain results from clinical biochemical laboratory analyses” did not have it after all. Because of this, figure 2 should exclude the entry for clinical task No 10. The authors say that the error does not affect the principal findings or conclusion.
