Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
I have always remembered Prof. Hoyte. Our Anatomy instruction was
thorough. Prof Hoyte simplified even the most difficult anatomical region.
He was extremely articulate and had a kind firmness. Staff and students
had exceptional respect for Prof. I can hear and see him even now (about
thirty five years later).
