Supplying the demand for doctors: the need to end the rationing of medical training places

NHS Evidence - health management - Thu, 02/06/2016 - 11:37

Civitas -
This report proposes that instead of Health Education England (HEE) making upfront payments for the training of its medics, medical students should be required to take out a loan from the Student Loans Company to cover the total cost of their training. It argues that the eradication of upfront payments by the NHS would mean the current cap on the number of doctors training each year could be lifted and the UK could train the number of doctors it needs. In addition to this, such a training loan would be repaid on behalf of each medic by the NHS through HEE on condition that doctors work for the NHS after graduating. If graduates leave the country to work abroad or transfer from the NHS into the private sector they would become liable for the repayment of these loans.
