We thank Uppal and Shikha for their kind comments about our recent paper which was written with the intention of further raising human factors (HF) awareness in OMFS.
1We have been involved in HF promotion, teaching and training for many years and have published widely in this area. The author(s) highlight the discontinuity between HF initiatives to improve patient safety within individual hospital Trusts and Deaneries and the need for support from National Organisations including the Royal Colleges, GMC and our own specialty Association, BAOMS.
