The Review Result


For the latest BBC report about junior doctors training click here. The review group has reported it has not been possible to scrap the online system completely, and can not allow trusts to go back to using the traditional system of selecting interviewees based on CVs. Instead it has recommended all applicants get a chance to pick another first choice, and get a guaranteed interview at that hospital.

Professor Neil Douglas, chair of the review group, said: "I am pleased that the colleges and BMA have agreed a joint way forward which will allow the best applicants to obtain training posts." The mess that this training bombshell has left within the NHS is far from over.

It's all too confusing for me... remind me what was wrong with how things were to begin with?

I couldn't agree more David, and it has several layers of complexity which I have decided to edit from the blog. The problem has been created by mismanagement. Michelle

I wish she had not started all this trouble, upset, misery, expense, stress, it's just too depressing.

Seems to me it hasn't been sorted out at all but only that they're now caught between a rock and a hard place.
