To the Editor: Mant et al1 explore an important aspect of the quality use of medicines in their study on the continuity of medicines from hospital to community. Their study on compliance with an agreed minimum dataset for patient medication information exchange between hospitals and general practitioners provides a useful perspective of an approach to systems change. I wish to point out a number of limitations that may have affected their results and make some suggestions to improve the quality use of medicines.
