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.
Here is the solution for all struggling NHS Trusts. A minor
modification of Mr Nicholson's statement:
"As far as the department/Trust (delete as appropriate) is concerned
we could be better at costing some of our policies.There are some examples
of policies we have costed that in practice have for a whole variety of
reasons cost more."
That should satisfy the DoH. It comes from the top!
