Doctors who wish to train flexibly in general practice should be aware that the minimum commitment is 60% of full time working, both as a hospital SHO and as a registrar in practice. Although Redfern and Scriven's recent article on this subject (BMJ 1998;316 classified suppl):2-3 (31 Jan) http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/316/7128/S2-7128 pointed out that a jobshare was one way of working flexibly as an SHO, a 50:50 jobshare could mean that neither doctor was eligible to have this experience accepted by the Joint Committee on Postgraduate Training for General Practice. Prospective flexible trainees should check with their regional director of general practice before accepting a flexible training post for any part of general practice training.
