CfWI ‘Recommendation for medical specialty training 2011’ report.

CfWI ‘Recommendation for medical specialty training 2011’ report.

The Centre for Workforce Intelligence (CfWI) has carried out a piece of work to analyse and inform on the numbers of doctors going into medical specialty training following on from foundation training. The work, commissioned by DH, in consultation with SHAs and Medical Education England (MEE), makes recommendations on numbers for the 2011 intake.

The report:

  • contains an overall analysis of numbers going into medical specialist training
  • contains more detailed analyses for each specialty
  • identifies which medical specialties are at risk of over supply as well as identifying the geographical balance.

This report is the first of a number of reports looking at the shape and size of the overall workforce needed for the NHS of the future. As one of the first pieces of work carried out by the CfWI in its current form, and within a constricted time span, the underpinning research is necessarily limited, but the report makes reliable recommendations and identifies emerging messages.
