“This research from Pulse is yet more damning evidence that EWTR is wreaking havoc on both service provision and doctors’ training. Not only is it impossible to deliver with current staff numbers, it is making life significantly worse for the very trainees it purports to protect.

That they are voicing concerns about fitness to operate due to lacking of training is extremely worrying for the future of the health service.“
