Our new medical school offers hope for both present and future GPs


What are some of these comments?? Frankly we need more doctors and I'm of the opinion that today's 18 year olds are adults who have worked incredibly hard to get a place and know what they're getting themselves in for. As for the comment above "Great idea also to use young fresh GPs who have a vast number of years experience under their belt." - I'm sure many of these "inexperienced" young GPs have teaching qualifications and enthusiasm that far outweigh what experience may bring to the table. Particularly when you're talking about training first and second year medical students. I'm sure they would love stuffy old GP stories, but frankly I think people who have gone through medical school more recently are likely to be much more helpful when it comes to teaching history taking and examination... All credit to you Roger I wish you all the best with it.
