Non-GP training posts 'could be capped' under radical plan to boost GP numbers


The numbers of trainees are revised almost every year and the trainee numbers depend on projected demand for that speciality. It has never been a open market in that respect ,that you can choose to train in whatever specilaity you want to train in. Prior to Calma the cut off point was at Senior Registrar trianing .Since Calman a trainee once recruited into a speciality subject to satisfactory asessments proceeds to end of training.This is not a exact science so no guarantee that there would be a post at end of training . However there is little point in training if there is not a reasonable prospect of empoyment in NHS at end
