The Royal College of Psychiatrists welcomes the Government’s decision to abandon the MTAS process
The Royal College of Psychiatrists welcomes the Government’s decision to abandon the MTAS process. The medical training application service (MTAS) system used to match junior doctors to specialist training posts has been shelved by ministers. Instead, the recruitment process will be CV-based, and handled at a local level by medical deaneries.

UK - No more a land of Equal Opportunities?
Indian doctors have historically made significant contributions to the National Health Service (NHS)for more than 30-40 years. The recent verdict on Friday, 9th Febuary 2007 has definitely disappointed these Indian medicos in the United Kingdom. The implications are that thousands of trainee Indian doctors in UK may have to return home soon as the London High court has upheld new rules, abolishing permit-free training for overseas doctors.

Certification of UK doctors would improve quality of care
Certification of UK doctors would help to improve quality of care, say researchers in this week's BMJ. England's chief medical officer recently recommended certification of doctors to strengthen professional regulation. Specialist certification is a well established process in the United States that allows doctors to demonstrate achievements and competencies beyond the minimum acceptable standards required for licensing purposes. Certified status must be renewed every six to 10 years.

Surgical Training in UK seriously compromised by EWTD
The findings of a survey of trainee surgeons carried out by the Royal College of Surgeons (RCSEng), in collaboration with sister surgical Royal Colleges, the Association of Surgeons in Training (AsiT) and the British Orthopaedic Trainees Association (BOTA) to find out the effect the European Working Time Directive (EWTD) has had on their training, their care of patients and the quality of their own lives reveals that the introduction of the European Working Time Directive has seriously compromised surgical training. The implementation of shorter hours has meant that training time in the operating theatre and contact with surgeon trainers have both diminished significantly.

Shortfall predicted in number of surgeons in UK
The NHS Plan, launched in July 2000, promised 7500 more consultants in England by 2004; an additional 1000 specialist registrars by 2004; and an increase of 1000 medical students across the UK by 2002. So far, the only target that has been met is the expansion of medical students. Whilst additional training posts have been offered, not all can be taken up due to lack of central resources and service pressures in hospitals. The Royal College of Surgeons insists that new training opportunities are able to deliver training of the required standard.
