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.
The author kindly reminds us of the remarkable benifits of
penicillin, truely a
wonder drug when it was first introduced. But in my experience, after a
day's clinic and ward rounds, a nice cup of Pencillin Tea (PG Tips, Bone
cup) is almost as therapeutic, especially accompanied with Drop Scones.
I have drunk tea from the penicillin
teapot and am grandson of author.
