The original article was published in Perioperative Medicine 2018 7:2

Correction

After publication of this article (Reeves et al. 2018), it was noticed that two references to the data contained within Fig. 5 were incorrect. In the ‘Funding’ section of the ‘Results’, the line that reads, “The service is funded by a per test fee from clinical commissioning groups (CCG) in 36/86 (41.9%) of services and NHS England in 1/86 (1.2%) of services. The NHS trust funded the service in 41.9% (36/86) trusts. Funding sources were unknown in 8/86 (9.3%) or other in 5/86 (5.8%) (Fig. 5)” should instead read, “The service is funded by a per test fee from clinical commissioning groups (CCG) in 12/86 (14.0%) of services and NHS England in 1/86 (1.2%) of services. The NHS trust funded the service in 60/86 (70.0%) trusts. Funding sources were unknown in 8/86 (9.3%) or other in 5/86 (5.8%) (Fig. 5)”.

In the ‘Discussion’ section, the line reading, “There has however been progress in the funding since 2011 with more than 40% now receiving fees from clinical commissioning groups” should instead read, “There has however been progress in the funding since 2011 with 84% now receiving fees from individual NHS trusts or CCGs”.
