To evaluate psychiatric training in one deanery following a programme of site visits, interviews with trainers and trainees, reports, and recommendations. To assess the findings in the context of NHS training requirements. Information was collected by semi-structured interviews and questionnaire surveys.
Forty-three sites were visited, training is generally of a high standard and most trainees are satisfied with their posts. There are significant problems in delivering sufficient community experience to general practice trainees and deficits in availability of multi-professional training programmes.
College tutors should work to ensure that trainees have access to shared learning occasions with non-medical health professionals to meet the NHS training agenda.
