Headline

Health Education England to consider extra year of GP training

Comment

Unscepted is right, the huge glut of GPs at present means we need to slow down GP training to reduce numbers. Practices are drowning under CVs, doctors are desperate to join partnerships, and profits are booming. This is a sensible move to maintain Primary Care in its current healthy state*. (*all true on Planet RCGP of course, though I believe conditions on Planet Earth may be slightly different)
