Yes, I am a trainer – but not for much longer


In our practice we all recognise that most of our partners were ex-trainees, so we see the value of training, and encourage everyone to take turn, and without doubt some are better than others. I did my fair share of both registrar and student training, but was not sad to stop. Each year it seems to get more process obsessed, and I question whether it actually makes for better GPs - the good ones are that way despite rather than because of the training, I fear.
