HC Deb 20 June 1988 vol 135 c414W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will introduce new arrangements for the career structure of National Health Service workers aimed at the promotion of medical or scientific research.

Mr. Newton

We have no plans to do so. The present medical career structure is flexible enough to accommodate doctors who wish to make a career in academic medicine or to combine scientific research with an NHS commitment.
