BMJ 2016; 352 doi: (Published 29 March 2016) Cite this as: BMJ 2016;352:i1762

As evident from publications in The BMJ and elsewhere,1 2 one of the authors of this article (BMJ 2015;351:h4596, doi:10.1136/bmj.h4596), Bruce Keogh, who is medical director of NHS England, is a long standing proponent of improving NHS services seven days a week. The BMJ should have requested that this be included in the authors’ conflict of interest statement.
