HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c441W
Sir Anthony Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what steps he takes to satisfy himself as to the adequacy of the post qualification training of general practitioners.

Mr. Hayhoe

The standards of training and performance of general practitioners are governed by the corporate bodies of the profession. Medical graduates in order to become principals in general medical practice are required to undertake a three-year period of vocational training as specified in regulations or to have equivalent experience.
