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


I was really lucky that the practice I was at truly treated me as supranumery. I had no problems asking for leave, organising courses or other learning opportunities. I am now a partner at the same surgery. Unfortunately we will be stopping training if this is introduced. Those that will accept trainees are those who make a business case for having them, meaning they will not be supranumery and not benefit from the quality training I had.
