To the Editor: On behalf of the Australian Medical Council (AMC), I would like to comment on a recent article1 and two letters2,3 in the Journal about the content of the AMC’s Good medical practice: a code of conduct for doctors in Australia (“the Code”)4 and the consultation process used to support its development.
