GP numbers not to blame for weekend death rate
GP trainer Dr Tim Jennings believes he could be one of a number of trainers forced to become 'fallow' as his deanery defers registrar places for lack of funding.
Dr Jennings, who works in Syston, Leicestershire, warns the move is likely to see some trainers quit, resulting in an even worse training scenario in years to come. 'It is going to happen to us,' he said.
'Being fallow can be dispiriting, especially to new trainers as enthusiasm starts to wane that's when they start to drop out as the trainer grant is just not enough.'
