From Dr A Gilston

Sir: Anaesthetists are doctors, too. Ken Jones (27 February) says the boxer McClellan "was attended by three doctors and an anaesthetist", demonstrating a common misconception that anaesthetists are not medically qualified. This public ignorance about us is long-standing, and the Royal College of Anaesthetists will probably never correct it despite continued efforts.

Yours faithfully

Dr ALAN GILSTON, FRCA

(Past President, World Federation of Societies of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine.)
