Read Prof Tooke's response here and many other including the role of the doctor (Important document)
What I understand from the report so far:
1- Medical Education for England will be established :)
2- More apprenticeship places for frontline staff (More places for the juniors? Must be)
3- Stress the importance of excellence and innovation and encourage both to flourish, therefore, unlocking talent to improve service
4- Stressing that clinicians are leaders
5- Setting fronline free from central control
6- Medical directors in every SHA
7- No New Ttargets
8- Nurses to be allowed to set up shop
9- 150 Polyclinics
10- More accountability measures for team members
Other measures to do with the provision of the service itself
Sir Tooke: "I am pleased that this report shows the Government’s commitment toensuring that medical education and training ison the right footing for the future andacknowledges the crucial part the profession ofmedicine has to play in securing that future. ......
The proposals in this document address many of the challenges I set out in my Inquiry report.
In this regard, I am particularly pleased to see the creation of Medical Education England
During the turbulence of the last two years, trust was lost between the profession and the
Government. The strategic review offers a clear vision for the future of education and training"
:) .. So, I was right to trust the man afterall ... And, he made sure that this document is the 1st to be published on his site straight after the report.
