§ Mr. Sackville
Unequivocal guidance issued to the health service in January—HSG(93)5—states that under
Year ending: 31 July 1991 31 July 1992 31 July 1993 Students obtaining their first registerable qualification from medical schools in the United Kingdom 3,573 3,644 n/a
Year ending: 30 June 1991 30 June 1992 30 June 1993 Doctors joining general practice in the United Kingdom 1,609 1,510 n/a
The doctors covered by the two tables will not be the same, as a period of training follows first registerable qualification before admission to general practice. The second table will include doctors who qualified outside the United Kingdom.
