 Many Docs Not Completing Training Course

More and more doctors in UK are dropping out after completing just two years of their NHS training course, a new report released by the Medical Programme Board reveals.

According to the data, around 23 percent of junior doctors drop out of their course just when they are about to take up their specialization. However not all drop completely out of medicine with the report adding that some of them rejoin the course after a few years while others continue to work in some other part of the NHS.

The British Medical Association said that one of the major reasons for the junior dropping out was the heavy workload, a point of view supported by the unions. "Understaffing makes our work much more intense and does not go unnoticed by our patients", the chairman of the BMA's junior doctors committee, Dr Shree Datta said.

However the government denied that there were any workload issues though no comparisons can be made since this is the first such study.
