Figures show widening shortfall in GP training with 20% of places unfilled

Comment

10:28am ''So what if there is a 20% shortfall.These things are cyclical.In 5-10 years time we'll be talking of not having enough training places to meet demand.'' I have heard about this concept of ''cyclical phenomenon'' from some of the GP partners in my locality - who are under the impression that cyclically the Government will increase the funding for General Practice (as they did in 2004) when they are faced with a recruitment crisis.
