I was delighted to be quoted in Seamus Ward's feature on onestop shops (Buildings special report, 17 October). However, I am reported as saying services could be transferred from the community to the hospital. This would run contrary to the NHS plan - the reverse, of course, is the case. Providing local access to outpatient clinics to avoid visits to hospital is a key feature of one-stop shops.
