Immunology - MAC inclusion report September 2009

WRT analysis indicates there is evidenced room for growth in the specialist immunology workforce. The trend towards increasing clinical referrals, especially in relation to allergic disease, mean adjustments to skill-mix are unlikely to diminish the accepted need for more medical immunology/allergy posts. In the medium to long term, deaneries, SHAs and employers should work collaboratively to establish regional initiatives for training and employing staff. However, in the short-medium term, overseas recruitment is a sensible strategy for alleviating staffing shortages for medical posts in immunology that are not training posts.
