Future child and adolescent psychiatrists: a further survey of senior registrar training

  • Christopher Bools (a1) and David Cottrell (a2)
Extract

Child and adolescent psychiatry is a growing speciality. Significant increases in workload, the reasons for which have been described elsewhere (Black, 1989), have led to an expansion in consultant posts across the UK. Recently the Joint Planning and Advisory Committee (JPAC) reviewed senior registrar numbers and recommended an increase in the establishment by 38 whole-time equivalents in England and Wales, a rise of 38%, to meet the expected shortfall. How existing senior registrars, as well as this large number of new recruits, are trained is clearly a matter of some importance.
