Consumerism may be an empty philosophy, but it has produced some useful tools. A Guide to innovative training in general practice has just been published by the BMA, and gives contact details of schemes that offer at least 18 months of training in a general practice setting. Schemes in Glasgow, Kettering, south London and Yorkshire currently make the grade: the second edition, due later this year, will have more. GP registrars continue to be a commodity in relatively short supply, strengthening the hand of course organisers who want the posts on their vocational training scheme to be directly relevant to primary care.
