After we went to press, we were alerted to an error in one of the Health Commission's results given in this news article by Adrian O'Dowd (BMJ 2006;333:769, 14 Oct). In the fifth paragraph, we said that, of all the NHS trusts in England examined in the commission's annual “health check,” primary care trusts performed least well, with 78% of them being rated as “fair or weak.” In fact, the percentage should have been 70%.
