Senior House Officers

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 24 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether she plans to delay the implementation of the Modernising Medical Careers reforms in respect of Senior House Officer grades beyond August 2007; and if she will make a statement. (96153)

Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) is a major initiative aimed to improve both patient care and doctors’ training. For this reason it is subject to significant governance processes involving both the Department and the national health service. We are satisfied that MMC is proceeding satisfactorily and we do not consider it necessary to delay it.
