Is general practice vocational training at risk? In reply

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


Boffa appears to have over-looked the key messages in my editorial,which clearly outlined the risks inherent in government involvement in vocational training for general practice.These risks include a lack of long-term funding commitments, reliance on professional support for success, and the current challenge posed by the poor image of general practice and training requirements among potential registrars. My editorial also clearly stated the need to distinguish medicopolitical objectives from the requirement for high standards of education and training.
