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.
We were saddened to learn of Dr Richardson's sudden and untimely death. Staff in our Graduate Entry Medical programme remember her fondly, and we wish to extend our sympathies to all her family, friends and colleagues. She was an excellent student and trainee, and would have made a fantastic GP.
