The chairman of the council of the Royal College of General Practitioners, Dr John Toby, has warned that vocational training schemes will have to train 150 more people to produce 100 practising general practitioners. Speaking at a recent conference on the future of primary care he said that on one training scheme none of the general practice registrars planned to go into general practice immediately. Schemes had to be more innovative and he gave an example of one that offered good hospital links and was developing a senior house officer post that was part time in general practice.
