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.
What are the stats on suicide for non-Consuktant grades over the last five and last ten years? I asked the GMC this and they could not supply the answer. That is unacceptable.
I know of two young colleagues who have died thus, and today's juniors and trainees are very stressed. The hours might be shorter, but there is no support such as there was in the "bad old days".
What are the GMC and the BMA going to do?
