Current GP trainee recruitment data announced revealed that for the first time ever over 3,000 doctors have been recruited in Round 1 by Health Education England, who are now well on the way to meeting their 3,250 target.
Addressing delegates at the NHS Confederation’s annual conference and exhibition in Manchester, HEE Chief Executive, Professor Ian Cumming announced the record breaking data which shows that the current fill rate figure is 3019 compared to 2732 this time last year, a 10% increase.
Professor Cumming said:
I am delighted to be able to announce that a record 3019 doctors have been accepted posts on GP training programmes in Round 1 of our recruitment programme so far this year.
“This is a record breaking figure and is up 10% on the figures for this time last year. We still have round two to go but I am confident that we will hit 3250 target for the first time in our history.”
Confed is the NHS Confederation’s annual conference and exhibition. This year’s event was held in Manchester from 13 to 14 June.
