Due condideration.


I wish simply to congratulate the writer for being brave enough to voice
his recognition of the often sound contributions that nurses can make. In
an age when a genuine multi-disciplinary approach is seen to be in the
best possible interests of our patients, I hope that increasingly this
refreshing idea is not only talked around, but adopted and acted upon.

Thank you.
