Training the future GP – Enhancing delivery of GP specialty training

Training the Future GP

In the decade of HEE leading General Practice Specialty Training, we have overseen the biggest ever increase in the number of postgraduate doctors accepting places to train as GPs in England, by over 50 per cent to 4,032 in the last year. In this time, we have also published two seminal reports in support of English NHS General (medical) Practice. The Primary Care Workforce Commission, led by Professor Martin Roland, outlined a vision for team-based primary care led by GPs. By choice – not by chance, led by Professor Val Wass and co-sponsored with Health Education England by the UK Medical Schools Council, has been applied in every English medical school. Both have received international acclaim.
