Our editing of the author's comments on assessment of non-drug technologies made them more definitive than intended and not strictly true (BMJ 2006;332:1266-8; 27 May). The published article, by James Raftery, said that Australia did not have a body that assessed health technologies. In fact, the Medical Services Advisory Committee in Australia and the New Zealand Health Technology Assessment Unit both have some form of assessment of non-drug technologies.
