GP training should involve psychiatry placement, BMA says

Comment

Sorry but NHS psychiatry has been lost. Due to new ways of working medically unqualified people such as social workers and routinely conducting new patient initial assessments, nurses often gatekeep admission to the ward (I'm not joking - Consultant psychiatrists need PERMISSION to admit someone!) and so forth. This battle has been lost.
