RCS response to proposals on changes to medical training

30 Jan 2015

Commenting on proposed changes to medical training, RCS Council Member, Mr Ian Eardley, said:

“Plans to alter medical training are necessary to meet the changing needs of patients as the population ages. Training needs to give doctors the competencies and experience they need to deliver high quality care and should not be determined solely by time served. Plans need to look at the over-reliance on trainees in delivering the service, particularly at night, where training opportunities are limited. A one-size fits all approach will not work for all medical training - medical specialities should be able to tailor the way they implement the review’s recommendations.”
