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.
Several articles recently cite alternatives to WhatsApp, but looking at all of them on the App Store shows that none have a significant number of reviews, and none state clearly that they are compliant with new regulation. In addition, medical twitter has exploded. With informed consent one presumes, doctors worldwide are posting images of X-rays, echos and more, with a vibrant discussion on what is seen, and what to do. If one retweets, forwards or comments, is that also against the law? Within the team WhatsApp works, that's why it has infiltrated Drs Phones in local environments. I wait for the first test case in Law.
