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.

outside clinics, before and after hours MDT's and meetings.
Perhaps its time to say no I am sorry I do not have the time. If you are
looking for a yes answer, ask a reasonable question or give us the
resources to give you the answer you are hoping to hear.
