Health Education England announces another record-breaking year as highest-ever numbers accept GP training posts.
Figures released by Health Education England (HEE) today show the highest ever number of people entering GP training in NHS history.
This year’s figure of 3,473 means the annual target of 3,250 has been surpassed for the first time.
More than 300 additional trainees will enter specialty training compared to last year, an increase of over ten per cent.
This is the third year in a row that HEE has broken records for the number of GP trainees accepting places.
