Following the publication of this article [1], the authors reported a number of errors which are given below.

The published article contained a discrepancy in Table 3 between the PDF and HTML versions of the article. In the PDF version Table 3 was missing a row as shown below:

Table 3 Data collected for process evaluation

Table 3 should in fact contain four rows as in the HTML version:

Table 3 Data collected for process evaluation

Furthermore, Fig. 4 was condensed upon submission, which resulted in half the data lines losing their legends in both the HTML and PDF version. Figure 4 originally appeared as follows:

Fig. 4
figure1

Clinical processes focussed on by hospital teams during EPOCH. Legend: CT, computer-aided tomography; WHO, World Health Organization; VTE, venous thrombo-embolism

The correct version of Fig. 4 is:

Fig. 4
figure2

Clinical processes focussed on by hospital teams during EPOCH. Legend: CT, computer-aided tomography; WHO, World Health Organization; VTE, venous thrombo-embolism

Furthermore, the names of several members of the EPOCH trial group were not processed correctly and should have been processed as follows (Given Name, Family Name):

  • Mike Bradburn

  • Fiona McMenemie

  • Jason Cupitt

  • Robert Thompson

  • Nick Harper

  • Simon Sleight

  • Belinda Cornforth

The authors also noticed they submitted an incorrect list of authors and the correct list is shown below:
