A forgotten tribe: a survey of the experience of working as a non-consultant career grade psychiatrist

  • Nicola Claxton (a1) and Lucy Griffin (a2)
Abstract
Aims and Method

We surveyed the experience of working as a non-consultant career grade psychiatrist (NCCG). A postal questionnaire was sent to 140 NCCG psychiatrists in the south-west region.

Results

A total of 90 doctors responded (65% response rate); 30 (33%) had never had supervision and 45 (50%) were not eligible to sit the MRCPsych examination. Only 41 respondents (46%) had administrative support for non-clinical work.

Clinical Implications

Good supervision, comprehensive job plans and opportunities for further professional development are essential requirements for this group of doctors.
