On seeing the debate around the word 'geriatrics' in the last issue of the BGS Newsletter, Dr Tak-Kwan Kong, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Hong Kong Geriatrics Society sent us this editorial on 'packing geriatrics'. It was published in the HK Society's Journal in 1996 - twenty-two years ago - which only goes to show, some controversies die hard!
