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.
My review of Plundering the Public Sector (29 July, p266) contains
two errors. The figures for earnings of management consultants given in
the second paragraph need to be increased ten fold to £10 000-25 000 a
week, and the figure of 23 million at the end of the third paragraph
applies to attendances not admissions.
