GP Vocational Training Scheme

Volume 448: debated on Thursday 29 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will take steps to ensure that funding is found to enable the 29 junior doctors who have had their general practitioner vocational training scheme posts deferred to start their training in August 2006. (81045)

Funding for investment in education and training is allocated to strategic health authorities (SHAs) for them to use according to local priorities. It is for the SHAs and their deaneries, in this case London, to determine their priorities and allocate resources accordingly. I understand there has been no reduction in the number of funded training places by the London Deanery.
