Letter: Community care

Sir: Your report "Tough new controls on violent and `untreatable' patients" (15 November) quoted SANE as being in favour of hospital rather than community treatment.

I FULLY agree with Mary Warnock's views on organ donations (11 July). As a future transplant surgeon, I'd like to point out that there are ways for people to indicate their wishes about organ donation well ahead of the time when such donations may be needed. In America the driver's licence has a space to indicate whether or not you are a donor, and the DVLA here could introduce something similar.

Letter: Funding hospitals

Sir: In reporting the Government's announcement of six new hospitals with Private Finance Initiative funding worth pounds 650m (8 July), Jeremy Laurance repeated some common misconceptions.

Letter: NHS choices

Sir: You are right to point out that providing the public with information about the success rates of health services is an important step towards making the NHS more accountable to the people who use and fund it ("NHS league tables will help to improve the nation's health", 17 June). Nonetheless, it is crucial that we are given information we can understand and use.

Sir: Your article about the dilemmas facing Chris and Daphne Ford when they discovered that their baby son had been buried without his heart (Review, 17 March) highlights issues which the NHS and healthcare professionals must take very seriously.
