GP Training budgets cut

20th July 2006

10052006_consultant1.jpgThe Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) are very concerned that training budgets are being cut, and the strong GP workforce of the future jeopardised, in order to meet NHS deficits. The RCGP say that they understand that money to make up the deficits must be found from somewhere but high quality training for the GPs of the future must be safeguarded and cannot be compromised, even in the short term.

The RCGP wants to see more invested in training and greater innovation in methods of training in primary care, with Strategic Health Authorities improving the resourcing of training programmes for general practice. This is essential to deliver the aims of the White Paper Our Health, Our Care, Our Say and to improve patient care even further, say the RCGP.
