Headline

Health Education England to consider extra year of GP training

Comment

Sorry, I am confused. I cannot see how an extra year of training will help the workload crisis. Is extended training intended to benefit the trainee with more confidence, the public with safer doctors, the NHS with presumably cheaper trainees than qualified GPs, or large training practices by staffing them with externally funded GP trainees? Because as a "First 5" GP, I struggle to see how extending training will help the workload or increase recruitment.
