Non-consultant career grade staff are being advised to delay their application to join the specialist register by the chairman of the BMA's Central Consultants and Specialists Committee. Criteria for assessing applications have not yet been published, and the Specialist Training Authority has yet to approve the criteria that will be used by the royal colleges. The CCSC asked for an extension to the present deadline for the end of the transitionary period (presently 31 December 1997) to enable the backlog of applications to be cleared.
