NHS :: BMA welcomes early NI Assembly debate on junior doctors’ training

The British Medical Association in Northern Ireland has welcomed the early debate by the NI Assembly on junior doctors’ training.

Speaking Tuesday 22nd May 2007, Dr Rajesh Rajendran, Chairman of the BMA’s NI Junior Doctors Committee said: “We will continue to work with the DHSSPS and Deanery to find a foolproof application system for the training of junior doctors.

“We will also seek to make sure that appropriate numbers of training posts are available to provide the NHS with the number of highly qualified doctors it needs to give patients a first class and safe service. We will continue to lobby the DHSSPS for robust workforce planning to ensure that Northern Ireland will not be in a situation where the health service is left with too few doctors and patients offered a second rate service.”
