Manpower 1982–1983

Extract

Bids for new posts for 1982–83 will be decided by Regional Authorities on the advice of Regional Manpower Committees within the next few months on the basis of guidelines formulated and issued by the DHSS. There seems little likelihood that cash limits will be significantly eased by 1982–83, and the case for psychiatry will have to be argued in face of a greater degree of consultant expansion to be allowed in the support specialties—e.g., anaesthetics, radiology, and unlimited expansion, as far as central approval is concerned, in general medicine, general surgery, and obstetrics and gynaecology. It may be expected that the non-metropolitan Regions will be better placed financially to meet consultant expansion, so that while on average two to three adult mental illness consultant posts will be permitted in each Region, Regions with resources may be encouraged to bid above this average, as preference will normally be given to Regions with the lowest ratio of establishment to population. The same principle would apply in child and adolescent psychiatry where on average one post per Region may be allowed. Only two new consultant posts in mental handicap will be created in the year in England and Wales. Applications for forensic psychiatry posts for regional secure units will be treated sympathetically, and, while there is no limit proposed for psychotherapy posts, the small number of senior registrars who will have completed training suggests that few bids are anticipated for this specialty.
