In reply: I thank Hughes for his comments. The message I tried to convey in my article1 is that it is important, with a relatively new specialty such as sports medicine, to have the opportunity to work with other medical specialties, health professionals and the community to establish a multipurpose facility where transparency of effort and integration of service, training and research can occur. I understand the University of Melbourne may be hosting a forum later this year to explore this matter further. There is thus no disagreement with Hughes.
