New hypertension guidance risks overdiagnosis and overtreatment

In this editorial by Haase and colleagues (BMJ 2019;365:l1657, doi:10.1136/bmj.l1657, 12 April 2019), the address of János Valery Gyuricza was wrongly given as Federal University of São Paulo instead of University of São Paulo. In addition the competing interest statement should have mentioned that John Brodersen is on the organising committee of the Preventing Overdiagnosis conference, for which The BMJ is a partner. The online version has been amended.
