Medical Training Application Service

Volume 458: debated on Tuesday 13 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the projected cost was of the Medical Training Application Service at the instigation of the service; and what the latest estimate is of the cost of the service. (126460)

[holding answer 9 March 2007]: The projected cost of the medical training application service at instigation was £5.8 million over five years for an England only service. Expanding to United Kingdom wide coverage and incorporating academic/specialty and general practitioner recruitment into a single, two-round recruitment exercise has slightly increased set-up costs. The projected cost of the service is now expected to be £6.3 million over five years.
