Budget delay hits training
There is much discussion about the new MRCGP, the clinical areas it covers and the skills needed to become a GP.
In principle it is a great idea and after three years of vocational training we should be equipped and prepared for such an exam. Unfortunately training schemes vary enormously in their quality to prepare us for professional life.
Changing the curriculum of the exam does not necessarily mean we will be equipped with these proposed skills.
Efforts have to be made to improve our training and cater for our educational needs to prepare us as future GPs.
