Pay for the privilege of training GPs? Practices will vote with their feet


'it has to benefit the practice' - well that says it all really doesn't it! I am sorry but some trainers really do abuse the training process. the trainee simply becomes an unpaid locum in certain surgeries. if you are an img and have failed the csa then you are simply told you need to see more patients/do EXTRA visits. the so call support of trainers is invisible in those situations. Some surgeries cant function without trainees -they need them. All this talk of how it is done for the benefit of the trainee is nonsense. the government has clued up to this.
