Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
I trust that this Review will shine an independent mirror on the GMC charity's own record in terms of contributing to the 'poor wellbeing' - and far worse - of doctors. And that the charity will act accordingly and be part of a collaborative and sustainable effort with such organisations as NHS England, Health Education England, Medical Schools Council and Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to reduce the increasingly 'hostile environment' in which so many good and caring people are struggling, burning out, becoming ill or jumping off what Margaret McCartney describes as an 'NHS in terminal decline' (1).
