    Abstract

    From 1976 to 1979 trainees in the Oxford region had their clinical work monitored while in their training practices in relation to 16 conditions requiring long term supervision. Although the mean numbers of patients seen were not greatly different from national figures, the range identified some trainees whose number of patients was very low. Consultation rates and follow up figures indicated that many patients did not return to the trainees again.
