Obs and gynae - MAC inclusion report September 2009

There is evidenced room for workforce growth within the obstetrics and gynaecology medical workforce. DH has invested substantially to support sustainable trained doctor solutions, however this investment will take time to have an effect on front-line services. Increasing the number of trainees coming through the system will improve the supply situation within the workforce in the medium-long term. In the short term the use of overseas recruitment is a sensible mechanism for alleviating shortages within the specialty.
