Wales was first

April 16, 1999

I was surprised to read that Newcastle University's medical school was the first in Britain to get "a quality thumbs-up" (Teaching, THES, March 26). Not so. The University of Wales College of Medicine was rated excellent in its assessment in November 1997. To avoid any further misclaiming, the College of Medicine's Dental School received a similar rating in December 1997.
