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 authors of this piece have clearly conflated The Middlesex Hospital Medical School (of blessed memory) - part of the University of London - which would have been where Dr Ingham Clark attended after Cambridge, with Middlesex University - an institution only founded in 1992.
I have noticed a tendency for my alma mater to gradually disappear from history and I guess it will be unknown to many younger doctors so when it does feature, please identify it correctly.
